Writing a bio can be a real drag, but necessary I suppose. But when you are a photographer it seems as though the ideas and creativity in the images should do a bit of the talking. Anyway, lately I’ve been into photographs of ‘his-nibs’ in action – maybe just to prove that I do work – on occasion – here and there. This might inspire a series of myself starring into puddles – who knows.
So here’s a bog standard bio of sorts:
With a background in print media and photography, Wilkinson has worked in marketing communications for 15+ years. Starting in London for a public relations and design firm specializing in film clients such as Disney and Virgin Interactive (worked on Toy Story etc.). In New York, Wilkinson worked for Ernst & Young LLP in creative services and furthered his media experience with Merrill Lynch in Princeton. After that creative death sentence he made some money and quit on Cinco De Mayo – which as been a very special day ever since, ten years later.
Here’s another one:
Writing a bio can be a real drag, but it’s as necessary as a drag on my cigarette. When you are a photographer it seems as though the ideas and creativity in the images should do all of the talking. If a picture is worth a thousand words I guess that makes me loquacious, or annoyingly chatty, so I’ll limit this description of myself to a quarter portion of a polaroid and save the heavy frames and museum glass for my real words- images.
Following an idyllic life in England working for a design firm on projects like Toy Story, I worked for Ernst & Young LLP in creative services in New York and for Merrill Lynch in Princeton. I quit that lucrative, predominantly beige, creative death sentence on Cinco De Mayo and haven’t looked back.
I have curated, exhibited, and sold internationally, specializing in pop art sculptures and photography. My work has appeared in the NY Times and through my unfailing pickiness, I’ve managed to create a body of work whose strength lies in its persistent flirtation with the commercial.
Lately, I’ve been into seeing photographs of ‘his-nibs’ in action – perhaps to prove that I do work – on occasion – for intelligent people who know how to spend their money and for the poets and paupers who make their lives worth living. Seeing so many beautiful subjects so thoroughly twisted up in themselves might inspire a series of myself staring into puddles – who knows- there are so many ways to fall in love.
