British artist Terry Flaxton was born in 1953 and has been creating moving images since 1976. In 1979, he obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Art specialty communication design and then spent more than 30 years working as a director of photography. During this period, he directed the filming of the third film captured electronically with Channel 4 and BFI’s Out of Order in 1986.
