Trevor Wilson born in Cullybackey (1990), studied Contemporary photographic practice (2009-2012) at UCA Rochester, Kent. He first began to develop his visual practice photographing friends, lovers, skateboarders and artists. Exploring themes of identity and how their environments shape them. Using photography as a tool to capture people, places and landscapes. After his studies he spent some time in London before coming back to Belfast where he started working as a photographic assisted to Unit Stills photographers in the film industry. Spending the past four and half years with Helen Sloan (SMPSP) on Game Of Thrones. He began working on his own visual practice in the off-season of filming. Spending a lot of time in Finland exploring ideas. It was here he started working on photographs throughout the Finnish countryside. Photographing small villages, punk’s shows, portraits of teenagers and bleak arctic landscapes. This exploration helped develop a way of working for the visual artist and pushed an exploration into more landscape and portrait work.
The focus of my work is not stuck within a specific theme, but rather using photography and film as a tool to explore people and places. Creating photographs, which together encapsulate a sense of visual poetry.
