About Me

stop, open your eyes & imagine

“Everything you can imagine is real.”

Pablo Picasso.

what I do

My name is Arwyn Bailey and I am a Visual Arts Doctor and Time Lord. I look at the world and interpret what I see and then capture those moments in time.

I work through the medium of photography and in a variety of styles.

My images have been likened to everything from Rubens, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Bill Brandt amongst others.

Though this is flattering, and I am influenced by such greats, but my style is my own.

I like to push the boundaries of photographic art.

“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.”

Friedrich Nietzsche.

what I believe

I am, unashamedly, Christian in my faith believing that Jesus Christ is the risen son of God and much of my work draws upon the themes of redemption, death and life beyond this world.

However, I enjoy hearing the opinions of others, whether they be Atheist, Agnostic, Ignostic or of any other religion or belief. Just buy me a beer, and I will listen!
