The six of us
We are also on Facebook - SIX Collective
30 years of photographing the urban built environment and I’m still exploring and awed by the urban spectacle surrounding us. Permanently based in New York City but frequently bouncing across the Atlantic, photographing the streets and structures of the two environments stokes my sense of identity and belonging on both sides of the Pond.
Not glamorous architectural, Becher objective or social documentary my photography is a heavily subjective, cumulative approach tying experience, culture and physical structures together. With a focus on texture, colour and light there is still nonetheless a clear and important representation of location based reality.
The layers of society and the experienced world fascinate me, and keep me searching for the understanding of relationships between people, their world, reality and simulacrum.
In 2015 I returned to Czech Republic after 8 years in Eastern China. Prior to this, I lived in the UK for 4 years after initially leaving South Africa, before my first move to Brno.
I enjoy living on the periphery of a culture and society, since not quite understanding that and those around me, helps me to visually explore my world in order to make sense of it all.
Rob™ is a photographic artist living in the rural North-West of England.
After leaving school, I studied graphic design before moving into a career in engineering, initially as a designer and subsequently as a certification specialist. A number of years ago, I picked up a camera again in order to break away from the rigid constraints and structure of the technical and back into something more creative.
My aim is to record the journey, the road trip, getting from A to B geographically, temporally or metaphorically, and the things I see whilst I'm on that journey using whichever style of image making seems right at the time. Another recurring subject is what has been termed the “mundane” or "neutral"; those everyday things we fail to notice until someone makes an image and we are asked to stop and consider them.
Occasionally I'll even try different things.
I'm a photographer based in South East England. I view my practice as conceptually based documentary. My work spans both portraiture and landscape and have a particular interest in East London. My photographs have been exhibited in London, Oxford and Sheffield and are held in private collections and archives. I have a degree in photography from the Open College of the Arts.
Much of my work is concerned with transience, of periods of change and the transitions people and places go through, and the way that portion of time is seen at a later date.
I favour a measured, methodical approach to image making; often revisiting subjects and themes a number of times in order to build a series of experiences and ways of seeing from which I can draw out the essence of what I am trying to say through my work, but also enjoy including elements of fortuitous circumstance should the opportunity present itself.
I have an interest in exploring the photographic medium as a form of visual expression, and enjoy experimenting with techniques and methods and the variety of often unexpected results these produce.
I’m an amateur photographer. My work has featured in undergraduate photography degree course materials, magazines and books such as Big Issue in the North and Perspectives on Place: Theory and Practice in Landscape Photography, and in a few exhibitions like [( 6 )] at Bank Street Arts and the Shape Open, Shonibare Studio, London.
I am an Associate Member of the Royal Photographic Society, have a first class degree in Photography, and am just completing a Fine Art MA at Camberwell College of Arts (University of Arts London).
