With a career in commercial photography that spans two decades, Mike Basher’s intimate, fine art work breathes a powerful sense of peace and tranquility through spatial relationships. His work–captured entirely on large format film–has an incisive clarity and quiet meditative mood. Many photographs tell the tale of a grander space, whilst showing only the limited elements he has chosen to unveil.
The simplicity of his work is more of an allusion to, not a direct depiction of his subject matter, where he challenges the viewer to derive their own interpretation as to its whereabouts. Directly, his photographs deliver a sublime experience, found in ordinary space.
His background with fast-paced, high stress commercial campaigns has taken him all over the globe, creating assets for brands like Under Armour, The North Face and Reebok. This expertise has culminated in his captivating personal fine art work.
