(b. England 1969)

" I like to express my ideas through the style known as Pictorialism, the fusion between painting and photography

… I am fascinated by the way light makes people and objects look magical and ethereal."

Allan Jenkins

Allan Jenkins is a purist and traditionalist, working only with natural light and using old-fashioned alternative non-silver processes. These methods were first practised in the 1890’s combining ferric salts and carefully exposed UV light, that cooks the images slowly into the fibres of the paper through the density of the negative.

The work is dark and mysterious, every print a curious mixture of new and old. Jenkins aims to “capture the pure essence of beauty with an overtone of simplicity yet great attention to intricate and subtle details. Still life inspires me because the natural elements can be captured in great depth and the subtle shapes and forms can be enhanced by the combination of gentle daylight and darkness. I achieve this by adopting the ‘chiaroscuro’ effect, that has been practised by painters for centuries”

“In my figurative work, I do not look for the so-called ‘perfection’ that is usually represented in society today. I strive to capture the unique and natural depth of beauty that exists in all people.”
