Having embarked upon a part-time Masters Degree whilst working as a Bristol based press photographer, Stephen Lewis was faced with choosing a project to produce and exhibit as part of his course. Previously dispatched to a crematorium to illustrate a press feature, he knew that there was much more to capture if given the time. ‘Crematorium’ provides us with a privileged insight in to a very final stage of human existence.
“It was always at the back of my mind that I hadn’t fully covered the subject and there was still far more left to discover. Photography to me has been most rewarding when the camera has enabled access to the unseen and often unknown.”
