Artist bio

Nationality British, b. 1965
Location: United Kingdom, UK

Derrick Santini hails from North Yorkshire and discovered his love for photography at the age of thirteen, whilst taking pictures with his mum’s old Agfa camera. Derrick spent his teenage years recording everything he saw; initially a silent and passive observer, he came to regard the images he took as slices of life, ’moments in-between’, as statements about the individual, society, culture - and ultimately as an expression of the human condition.
This early fascination became a more serious vocation after attending Harrogate College to study a BTEC in photography followed by a BA (Hons) in 'Photography and Communication' at the London College of Communication. Whilst studying, Derrick rapidly evolved to become an accomplished reportage photographer. Voyeuristic in nature, and taking ultimate pleasure from ’stolen moments’, his interest lay in capturing subjects and situations onto which he could project his own intellectual and aesthetic thoughts and fantasies; unbeknownst to those who unwittingly submitted their realities for his surreal re-interpretations.
After this initial period prolific in reportage, Derrick’s talent saw him propelled into the fields of portraiture, music photography, fashion and advertising, where he developed a more confrontational approach to image making. He soon became renowned for his intimate and insightful portraiture style, particularly within the music industry where there rapidly became a huge demand for his iconic images. About eight years ago Derrick started experimenting with Lenticular photography, culminating in two acclaimed solo shows in London, and numerous other solo and group shows internationally.
