I'm always interested in hearing about new projects, thoughts on my work, or opportunities, so just throw an email my way at: wes@gravy-mag.co.uk 

Wes Foster’s work employs an abstract documentation of space and environment tocreate work heavily invested in examining the way we live now, but especiallythe façade that we all create to be displayed in these social and public environments. More often than not this work takes the form of removing the aesthetic from thesublime, or aestheticizing the very ordinary to visually explore larger ideassurrounding class, utopia and what it means to be content in the 21stCentury.     

These pieces take form usually in zines or books allowing these larger ideas to taketheir own form in a very complete way through a variety of photographic methods, though generally shot on a small point and shoot or a medium format rangefinder. The work is also available for free from his site to download and make yourself, part of trying to make photography a more democratised form and process. These can be found on my issuu account.

Aswell as his personal work there is also his music journalism, writing or photographing for publications like The Skinny, God Is In The TV, NowThen Manchester andBagThing has lead him to photographing bands like Suede, Savages and Sleaford Mods.
