In the eighties Keith Bossard became a member of the photography ‘advanced studies group’ at Missenden Abbey for over a decade. The ASG was a small group of photographers under the guidance of the Canadian photographer and educator Brian Nevitt. There he learnt to refine the art of seeing and the possibilities of depth and rich tonality in black and white prints. His darkroom still waits at the top of his house while he embraces the digital world and its disciplines. He enjoys travel but often returns to the Surrey Hills and the Sussex and Cornish coasts for his landscapes and continues to indulge his love for found objects, still-life and abstract composition. He believes that any camera can be a tool to create inspired work and still uses the square format, making his images in black and white using light, line and tone for their ability to stir visual emotion in the viewer.
