STEVE PYKE
[b. 1957] British photographer

 
l like sometimes to do away with environment in portraiture. It seems to me that often it's irrelevant; a lot of the time there's no context between the sitter and the space I'm photographing them in. - Steve Pyke
In the portraits there is 'stillness' as well, I agree. I like to photograph people in this very still way, but what I strive to do and what I really like is trying to capture those spontaneous eighths of a second that come every so often. - Steve Pyke
Most of my frames are made looking at and interacting with my sitters. - Steve Pyke
Photographers essentially become ontologists; they become these people that collect. - Steve Pyke
