I have had the pleasure of interviewing UK, photographer, Deborah Parkin for the first interview of 2010. Deborah comes from Hexham, Northumberland near the Scottish border.
Deborah’s images are black and white and she works with a medium format camera. What I am most attracted to about her work is the Film noir, Hitchcock quality in her images. Her surrealistic style is even more enhanced with her unique perspective and the way she sets up her shots. The unique contrast and tonal characteristics of her work sometimes remind me of Clarence John Laughlin and Eugene Atget. Her subjects are mainly her own children as well as architecture and the landscape of the Northumberland region.
Deborah’s book, Childhood Narratives is available for purchase here. ‘
