About Philip and Caroline Pegden
Philip has been a committed Fine Art photographer for over 20 years. He likes to explore individuals who look, perhaps, lost in their own lands. The photographs may appear staged and choreographed, but are all strictly candid impromptu captures. He is influenced by Edward Hopper, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Richard Avedon. His wife and creative partner Caroline works on his side to curate the collection. [Official Website]
