Young Lens based artists to watch 2013, Featured Artist: Roshana Rubin-Mayhew

ROSHANA RUBIN-MAYHEW

As a self taught photographer Roshana Rubin-Mayhew shows more prowess and control for her medium than many a photography graduate. Within her daily practice Roshana Rubin-Mayhew is drawn to observing the grandeur of life in the framing of the subtle details. Capturing the details which reveal the emotional tone of a situation, or the small gestures through which a person reveals themselves. Often taking one-off shots, each photograph is considered but not constructed. Although this work could be seen as documentation, for Roshana photography is not an act of remembering but a way of connecting more directly with the present moment.

Alongside her daily practice, she explores lines of thought and question within a tighter framework. The framework may detail a particular process or setting but attempts not to stifle the subject and rather still allow room for them to ‘breathe‘. Roshana is currently creating a new series of work called “I”. “I” is a series of explorations into the nature and location of self. She is interested in whether a deeper sense of self exists, when and how it is revealed, and whether it’s possible to photograph.

in 2012 Roshana Rubin-Mayhew has exhibited at various venues including Lakeside Gallery, Nottingham and as part of Salon Contemporary, Mat Roberts Arts, London.
