Allen is an artist and art teacher by training. He has worked for years as a visual artist, but has always made photographs as his principal means of self-expression. Over the years, he has created many bodies of work in a variety of genres and ways of working. The website reflects this experience, although presented first and foremost is his work in large-format still-life of most recent years. His work is wide-ranging in subject matter and feeling, from the enigmatic view camera still-life images to the whimsical or expressionistic pinhole and toy camera photographs, and from the expansive panoramic assemblages and experimental images to the minutely-detailed mandalas.
