WARREN BAYNES

Photographer

Lifestyle / Reportage

Warren travelled before he took pictures and was riding waves before either of those too. By integrating all these interests, he has developed a photographic personality that flows seamlessly between cultural experiences and spontaneous happenings.

A self-taught photographer with a style nurtured by the streets, Warren prefers location and vibrancy to complicated lighting setups. His images demonstrate a universal language: a world that is filled with lively characters and spontaneous gestures, all conjured up in dynamic compositions. As a street photographer making a move into the commercial realm, Warren brings with his images a sense of playfulness that comes from a working intuition honed on the trot.

Warren is currently based in Cape Town, South Africa, and is working on his first major photographic project about how boxing is used in prison to rehabilitative violent offenders.
