Steve Sumpton: Through the Screen

A photographic exploration of identity and perception.

In his debut solo exhibition, photographer Steve Sumpton recreates moments from his life that have helped shape the way he identifies with the LGBTQIA+ community. Manipulating visual cues to separate himself from these vivid, Crewdson-esque images, he invites you to connect with his work without restriction. Showing us that it isn't the moments that define us but the ways and intensities in which we experience them, this series brings an awareness to the role perception plays on our identity.

Steve is an emerging contemporary fine art photographer living in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne. Starting his career as a commercial graphic artist, photography has given him the freedom to allow concept to take the lead in his work while still maintaining a strong emphasis on technique. Drawing inspiration from the works of Gregory Crewdson, he creates images that use the mystery of unknown narratives to invite the audience to see a new perspective. His images play with vibrant colours and mixed lighting to exaggerate the world around us in order to bring simple concepts into focus.
