Geoffrey Hutchinson asks viewers to immerse themselves in detailed photographic landscapes that evoke fairy tales and myths. Inspired by childhood memories of the landscapes described in C.S. Lewis’s Narnia Chronicles, Hutchinson sought pristine wilderness locations and employed Ansel Adams’ technique to capture stunningly articulated images. The exhibition presents a quasi-chronological narrative, tracing the natural history of an Earth-like planet and the emergence of mythical beings and intricate landscapes. Through meticulous attention to detail and the human ability to perceive forms in patterns (pareidolia), Hutchinson’s works transport audiences to a realm of wonder and imagination.
Hutchinson was born in Newcastle, England, in 1962 to American parents. He moved to the U.S. at a young age and grew up in suburban New Jersey. Hutchinson studied fine art photography at the School of Visual Arts, where he received his bachelor’s degree. His career has primarily focused on fine art printing for photojournalists, music and fashion photographers. Hutchinson has exhibited his work nationally and internationally and operates a boutique fine art printing lab called Print Space. He also collaborates with artists, providing high-quality reproductions and art book production services.
