Henry Bateman is an Australian artist who relocated to the Philippines in 2005. He has been making art for over 3 decades primarily as a painter and a theatrical set & lighting designer. At the turn of the century whilst working on a commission he discovered digital photography. It has held him his thrall ever since.
Throughout his career, Bateman's work has had a strong abstract vocabulary. This passion informs his photography as he explores the abstract narrative inherent in the recording of the digital photograph.
Each of his compositions is a journey in which the image dictates what directions to take; Bateman's major contribution is knowing when a destination has been reached.
