EXHIBITION: Euan Myles – The 39 Steps
This intriguing exhibition is staged to complement the screening (on Sunday 10 March) of all three films made of the story of John Buchan’s “The Thirty-Nine Steps”. Euan’s homage of visuals inspired by the book and film come from his long standing love of the story.
Born and raised in Nottingham, Euan Myles’ love of photography started when his mum bought him a second-hand Yashica Twin Lens Reflex Camera on the Newark Market for £40 in an attempt to stop him constantly fishing the banks of the River Trent.
It worked (sort of) and he spent many days cycling across Nottinghamshire, photographing the countryside in an attempt to emulate his two photographic heroes Bill Brandt and Fay Godwin. Euan left school at 16 and cut his teeth as an YTS boy in Nottingham as an assistant, photographing pork pies, net curtains and Raleigh bikes – all great products of that fair city.
After graduating from Newcastle Art College, Euan immediately began working for himself, mainly for editorial clients and then increasingly for design and advertising. Over the years, Euan has been fortunate enough to work for some of the biggest brands in the UK and Europe, and his work has taken him to every corner of the UK and beyond.
Euan feels lucky that his work has allowed him to visit so much of the country he calls home. He can often be found on a far flung Loch in the remotest parts of Scotland chasing the wildest of trout.
