Oliver Poulter is a 24 year old photographer now living in London but who spent most of his childhood living on a rural farm in the South of England.
“I’ve always loved the work of Saul Leiter, Joel Meyerowitz and Stephen Shore and photography has been a big part of my life in the sense that it’s a visual record of the abstract happenings of my everyday life and has always helped me to make sense of the environment around me.
Moving from the countryside to the city was like being thrust into an ocean of new sounds, colours and aromas. Along with the jubilance of being part of a thriving metropolis comes the familiar anxieties that are part-and-parcel of adapting to a network of concrete tunnels and sweeping metal structures.
‘Something About The Southeast’ is a manifestation of those anxieties, a collection of images which are a culmination of many shiftless walks through different parks, estates and back alleys of South London.”
