I am a photographer and my work focuses upon minimalism and abstraction - of both subject and medium. I endeavour to portray a new perspective on everyday objects and surrounding views; encouraging reinterpretation of existing form and gestalt and finding beauty in the plain and unexpected. I hope to create work which is both visually and emotionally stirring and I greatly enjoy seeing the vast range of differing opinions to any one piece. I achieve my results through careful manipulation and balancing of brightness, contrast and saturation, as opposed to Photoshop.

I live in New Plymouth and have a great love for the arts. My primary passion and source of creativity lies in cinema; this is what inspired me to study photography. My heroes are directors such as Andrei Tarkovsky and Ingmar Bergman.

Connor lives in New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand
