Born 1988, in the United Kingdom, lives and works in Nottingham.
Freddy Griffiths is an artist working with and around photography, using the photographic image to further non-hierarchical methodologies in contemporary art and everyday scenarios. His ongoing exploration has resulted in the formation of a photographic archive.
Recent international investigations in the last two years have centred around questions of photographic materiality and the finite nature of natural resources. Walking or cycling as a primary mode of transport has defined the making of photographs during these excursions.
Griffiths is keen to embrace contradictory and ambiguous ways of working for future presentations of his archive. Democratising the editing process through audience participation is something of particular concern currently.
