Geoff Buono has been involved in photography since the age of 16, studying at Blackpool and the Fylde College, West Surrey College of Art in Farnham and L.C.C.

Spending three years working in U.S.A. for the worlds’ largest corporate communication company Geoff ran the Photography Department and was responsible for providing photography for multi-million-dollar projects with clients that included Mercedes Benz, SONY, Coca-Cola, and Ford Motor Company.

Geoff has exhibited extensively in the UK, the Czech Republic, USA, Shanghai and most recently as part of the Copenhagen Photography Festival. His practice embraces a variety of media, methodologies and formats and his work has examined a range of themes with a particular interest of the quotidian.

Geoff’s research has included a long-standing interest in the banal and everyday, and more recently an investigation of the cultural expectations and roles of fathers within the family unit. His current research is based upon a re-examination of Abstract Art.
