NOMINEE: Roger Coulam
A Grain of Sand (Series
This project addresses environmental abuses in a contemporary consumer driven society. The camera-less pictures are made with small found, un-considered, or discarded objects, and act as metaphors for our relationship with nature and the planet, and our thoughtless exploitation of the environment and its finite resources.
Roger Coulam was born in Lincolnshire in 1965, and educated in Yorkshire and Newcastle upon Tyne.
During eight years from 2000-2007 he developed a worldwide reputation as a ground-breaking severe weather photographer, rapidly developing his photographic business, and making several appearances on television and radio.
In 2008, after re-evaluating the direction of his image making, he made a decision to concentrate on developing his creative practice.
Much of this work has been made without a camera, but has also included printmaking, and book making.
"My images reflect my own interests and concerns about the world, and also my place within it. I attempt to try and understand my experiences and responses by making pictures, to bring order, to look and to explore".
He lives and works in Sunderland, England.
