Artist Statement 


Spencer is a writer/photojournalist whose work covers a wide variety of subjects. He grew up in London, England. While waiting for a train to pass, his keen eye for detail has observed nature and the changing seasons. Included here are examples of his skill with nature, as well as people and creative abstracts. In 2023 he visited Poland, where his lens captured many new subjects.


Spencer has exhibited his work at the New York State Fair, where he won a commendation from Kodak. His work has also been seen as far away as California, Oregon and western Canada; as well as in local libraries and galleries in Connecticut, and recently at the Mattatuck Museum. He was schooled at an early age in the art of watercolors and went on to study the history of art and music. Along the way Spencer informally took up photography, including the processing and printing of film.


The process of the visual recording of the world around oneself doesn’t change just because the medium has; i.e. from large photographic plates, to roll film, to digital. “One still has to observe, to see a picture to be captured through, in my case, the lens,” Spencer says.


This year’s exhibition not only shows his work with nature but also the daily things that we see as we go from place to place. In addition, some pieces show his creative work and photographic versatility with the computer in what he calls “Picasso would have done it.”
