Richard Gaston


Richard Gaston is a self-taught photographer originally from the countryside in Scotland. Gaston’s work holds a preference in utilising natural light and colour, aiming to illustrate experiences literally as he sees them, documenting the peaceful combination of nature and man through composition and the element of secludedness. Throughout Gaston’s imagery lies a vast sense of overwhelming landscape surrounding the micro aspect of mankind, conveying insignificance and feebleness in the face of epic landscape. His photography style coincides with his views on mountain culture – we are temporary, minute figures spending a fleeting amount of time in the chaos that is nature.
