Mr Wagner has been producing art work since he was just a child. He said: 'At 12 I started to draw and a year later I discovered graffiti, I started with nightly, illegal lettering in urban areas and improved my graffiti skills to large scale commissions.
'I bought a camera for my work and my friends to be documented as a graffiti artist. I quickly realised what great potential the photography had and I started to use it as an independent artistic medium to use.
'At 16 I was then beginning to realise that I wanted to be a photographer. During a long period of experimenting I found that with long exposure at night, things you can not see with the naked eye. could be visualised. That fascinated me and I started my 'Nightscapes' series.
