After quitting as senior photographer on the Bristol Evening Post EPUK member Alex Rumford spent a few months photographing in Nepal before beginning a pan-Asia journey that encompassed India, Bali, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam.
Photographs from Alex’s travels have now gone on show at the Jacksons Lane Theatre in London.
“The hard part of photography for me is being able to see things as they really are – not how you think they look,” says Alex who was travelling for one year.
“I had to be focused in seeing past what I thought looked interesting from a foreigner’s or tourist’s perspective, to what really looked good from a photographic point of view.”
Now based in London, Alex freelances for PR, editorial, charity and performance clients.
• Alex Rumford’s Asia is at the Jackson Lane Theatre, 269a Archway Road, Highgate, London N6 5AA, from March 31st to May 30th, 2010.
