Tricia Porter

My interest in photography began as a teenager, when I wanted to bring back an exciting visual record of my first trip outside Britain, to Moscow in an old bus loaded with college students and camping gear.

I met a photographer, Sylvester Jacobs who encouraged me to buy a camera. The Photographers Gallery was opened in London and there were seminars and lectures on photography to attend. We spent hours studying and learning from photographers work, such as Steiglitz,  Ansel Adams, Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Kertesz, Bill Brandt and many more.

My first photography exhibition was in Liverpool in 1972. This was the outcome of documenting my surroundings while living in Liverpool's inner city. Click here to read more about my exhibition work.

An exciting aspect of my work is running photography workshops in the community, enabling people to express themselves in a visual way. Click here for more information.

I have lived and worked in rural East Hampshire since leaving Liverpool in 1976.
