Colin New
Colin New

Colin New was born in Alton, Hampshire but moved to Yorkshire in his late teens. This is where he now lives and works.


His professional training was at Bretton Hall where he studied music, art and literature. This foundation was invaluable to his creative development as a photographer. Although all the clichés about childhood box brownies are true in his case, it wasn't until he chanced upon the work of John Blakemore that it dawned on him that photography might be something important. This meeting - combined with an exhibition of the work of Edward Weston in the local gallery in the same week - changed his life.  These events were the first time he ever wanted to own someone else's photographic work.  Prior to this time he had dabbled in the darkroom, but after he had seen their work he decided that he too must use photography to make his visual statements about the world.


Colin has regularly lectured for the Royal Photographic Society and at the National Media Museum Bradford. He has had "one man show" exhibitions in London, Harrogate, Bradford, Sheffield and Buxton.  He is also a member of the highly prestigious London Salon of Photography and past Chairman of GAMMA Fotoforum.


His work covers a wide area including, Educational Projects, People, The Nude, and The Land.
