About Mr Kuu

Cloaked in mystery, Mr Kuu is an observer amongst us, and from behind his camera lens, he asks us to stop for a moment and consider the world around us. He does not need the spectacular or the dramatic to create something beautiful; the love and care he showers on every detail surprise and delight at every turn as he renders the unremarked remarkable.

Using macro photography (in extreme close-up)coupled with modified miniature figures to present his vision, Mr. Kuu fiercely avoids image manipulation as he aspires to present life as we have rarely seen it; as a microcosm. His locations may be painstakingly scouted or stumbled upon accidentally, his imaginings are sometimes deliberate, sometimes inspired in a second, but his photography is always beautiful, always considered and always truthful.

His fine art photography plays with scale in such a way that demands a second (and third) look. He uses the fine detail of our habitats, parts of our environment that are rarely granted attention, a windowsill, a curb, an unassuming brick wall – as his background and introduces carefully modified miniature figures that at once bring a story and a humanity to their backdrop. The synchronisation between the backdrop and its new miniature inhabitants is especially impressive, giving the impression of naturalness, as if this is the new reality.
