Cliff Docherty is a self-taught, deaf photographer working in both digital and analogue formats and across a wide range of genres. With a particular interest in working with consumer level vintage cameras, his oldest kit dates back to the first world war and as an artist he is always keen to push simple technology to its limits, inspired by the ethos that it forces you to slow right down, to think only about the image, composition and technique. And there's the fun of the challenge of course!  At the same time having cutting edge digital gear is a joy, with high quality optics  allowing the production of timeless, elegant pictures, the experience that analogue brings in slowing down the process bleeds into the digital work by making him thoughtful in his work flow and perhaps more straightforward in his vision than previously. A member of both the Gay Photographers Network and the Royal Photographic Society, his work has been exhibited across London's buzzing arts scene for more than ten years.
