Gilbert Maximillian Townshend

(b. 1988, London, UK)


I’m dormant on a few other platforms like Tumblr and Instagram but if you want to reach me the best way is via email.


Degree in Graphic Design from Camberwell College of Art (UAL) - 2011

Foundation in Graphic Design from London College of Communication - 2007

Foundation Fine Art from City Lit - 2016


With a few exceptions all work is shot on film and developed by me (yes, even the C41 & E6 stuff). I’ve shot sub-miniature to large format and everything in-between.

My personal work is mostly photographic image based though I do also occasionally branch out into origami and a few other creative things. I enjoy working with obsolete or eccentric technology and am currently repurposing old film equipment to be used in new ways, including modifying medium format cameras to shoot instant film.

Currently looking for jobs and pondering a Masters.

I studied graphic design, did some web development after graduating, worked helping to do restoration of art on paper and very occasionally on TV sets as camera assistant.

Still not entirely sure what that makes me, other than adept at obsolete camera technology, reasonably good at cutting mounts and a passable web developer.
