Artist Bio:

Steve Gallagher is a Sussex-based photographer, originally from the American Midwest where he graduated with a Fine Arts degree in Visual Design and Photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Initially working in fashion photography in Chicago, Miami and New York, he then built a successful career in advertising and digital design before moving to the UK in 2002.

Living in a house next to the sea on Britain’s south coast, his love of photography was reignited by the beauty of the Sussex Downs and the ever-changing nature of the local shoreline and the sea. Moving into a house surrounded by nature, with an artist’s studio already built in the garden, his photographic focus on seascapes and floral portraits was almost inevitable. The confinement of the Covid pandemic imposed a time and space to distil his art. The limit on travel meant that his subject matter was stripped to a minimum, allowing Steve to focus on refining and redefining his practice over this period to produce the intricate and skilfully composed photographs that characterise his work.

Most recently, Steve has expanded his work into new media, including 3D lenticular prints and works on glass, aluminium and cloth. These new treatments further enhance his reputation as an innovative fine art photographer whose work captivates the viewer.
