Greg Allum is an artist whose work deals with themes of decay of the mind, the body and relationships.
His work connects with the voyeur luring them to delve deeper into the photograph, whilst using mainly anonymous models who are disconnected from our world and integrated firmly in the nature of the image they inhabit.
Greg shoots using traditional film methods in medium format and 35mm, solely using natural light and urban backdrops.
In recent years Greg has published three books which have sold in over 25 countries worldwide.
