Biography

Trevor Ray Hart started his career in photography working for magazines such as Time Out, Esquire and The Observer. Having built up a distinctive style, it wasn't long before he was in demand from other magazines and record companies.

Trevor naturally moved into advertising, creating memorable ads both in the United Kingdom and United States. He's won numerous awards along the way, including a D&AD Pencil and Grand Prix at Cannes for his work on the Club 18-30 campaign, shot for Saatchi & Saatchi in the UK.

Trevor enjoys mixing his work between editorial and advertising commissions, believing that to continually be working in both fields helps his photography stay fresh.

Trevor works for magazines such as Vanity Fair, US Vogue, Fortune, Fast Company, Esquire, GQ, The Observer, The Independent on Saturday and Sunday Review. His recent advertising clients include Standard Life, Zurich, Vodafone, Purina, Nationwide, Price Waterhouse Cooper, Manchester United, Special Blend and Forum, Unilever and T Mobile.

Trevor's gallery work includes an exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery and a continuing expanding archive at the NPG. Other recent shows have included the Royal Photographic Society the Q Idols Show and the Portraiture show at the New York Photo Festival.

Statement

"Gloucestershire is now my home county, after what seems a lifetime and then some of living in London. We made the choice to make a break away from the all consuming metropolis of my birthplace,not to pursue a romantic self-sufficient existence but to surround ourselves with somewhere new. To reinvigorate the senses, and start exploring again. To be an outsider once more, looking at this landscape and its people with a sense of detachment that only comes from being a stranger.

Gloucestershire for many people is the Cotswolds and I want to explore this most quintessential part of Britain: to use it as a backdrop. To try and introduce a more modern personality to this county. Incorporating some form of contemporary reference to the picture postcard image associated with the region.

So the Towns and villages of the region along with the landscape will all be new hunting grounds for me. Local paths and roads are all unfamiliar routes, leading to who knows where. I want to familiarise myself with this county of honey coloured stone buildings and the large expanses of undulating hills and pastoral land. Is it really as idyllic as it can seem on those all too precious sunny days or is it all just a quaint facade."
