Howard is a soulful, predominantly abstract photographer who was born in Penang in 1974.
He is self-taught, and his unique flair and eye for capturing the ordinary and making is extraordinary has resulted in major exhibitions in Penang and the island of Langkawi, where there is a permanent showing of his work in the world-renowned Four Seasons Hotel.
A wide range of subject matter filters into his work, from major historical buildings in Malaysia and Langkawi, to character filled stray cats and dogs, landscapes, and the old quarter of Penang – where he lives and works for most of the year.
A vital component in the majority of his work is colour and how it behaves in the photograph. Many of Howards photographs hover between abstract compositions and reflect a timelessness, almost a slowing down of pace and time, that keeps the viewer interested long after the photograph has been taken. Much of his interest in the photography grew out of an appreciation of good movies by directors like Wong Kar Wai and Tim Burton.
