ALLAN JENKINS is a fine Art Photographer born in Wales, raised in Catalunya (Spain), educated in Madrid, Tarragona and Yorkshire, and finally in London where he's been living since 1993. He is best known for his hand printed images of Still life and Botanical studies. He combines his interests in organic vegetables with his fine Art background, to create a wide range of Still Life images at his studio as well as working on location on products at source, his still life set ups are inspired by 17th century paintings vintage alternative printing techniques.

Allan has a visual fascination with nature that is mirrored by his own upbringing, this has been instrumental in creating a unique approach to his photography. He combines a graphic finesse with an almost spiritual like quality of calm and serenity in his photographs. His distinctive treatment of each subject matter is instantly recognizable and although his work is divided into various categories the link of his style remains identifiable in all of them.

His work has been shown in galleries, museums and Art fairs worldwide, from Asia, Europe and the United States. As a guest lecturer, Allan has taught advanced photography lectures at Central St Martins focusing on b / w analog photography and 19th century printing techniques. He has also recently started teaching Photographic Master class workshops in London, Spain and France, including tuition for the “Leica Moscow Academy” and a short film for ADOBE that combines traditional photography with current digital software.

Allan's photos have been published in numerous books and magazines, such as Conde Nast Traveler, Elle magazine, Eve and Random House Mondadori book covers. His clients range from Ralph Lauren to Ikea, the BBC and most recently PWC, Jose Cuervo Tequila, Somerset House, Candy and Candy and many more.
