Photography by Stuart Forster

Stuart likes to express himself through his photography. He believes photography can be used to inform and lead to greater understanding of the world. Specifically, photography can bring people to question what is happening around them and in distant lands, engendering interest in places, people and cultures.

He frequently travels away from North East England to research stories, aiming to capture the spirit of places and events. His passions include trying local cuisine, exploring history as well as experiencing the culture and contemporary attractions of destinations.
