Born in Bristol in 1969 John Angerson started his career in the early 1990’s, covering the fall of the Berlin Wall and the changing geopolitical landscape of Eastern Europe. Since then, his practice has continued to explore the different languages of documentary photography, focusing on how specific communities form, shift and develop. His personal projects have garnered critical acclaim and have been exhibited at major art institutions in the UK and overseas. His monograph – ‘Love, Power, Sacrifice’ documented the Jesus Army over a twenty-year period and peers into a microcosm of fanatical religion. He now splits his time between shooting personal work, holding University lectures and workshops and shooting features and portraiture for a range of magazines, charities, and design agencies.
John exhibits internationally, with an exhibition of his ‘On This Day’ series planned to take place in China soon. He has been commissioned by many international publications including The Sunday Times, Rolling Stone, Der Spiegel, El Pais and others. His numerous recent awards have included Spectrum Imaging Award (2109), Chinese Photographer Magazine Award (2019), British Life Photography Award (2018), RPS International Photography Award (David Hockney Portrait 2017), Cream Design Awards (2017 & 2016).
Six books dedicated to his work have been published. A wide range of his superb photographs can be viewed on the artists website
