Rob™ is a photographic artist living in the rural North-West of England.
After leaving school, Rob 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, he 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.
Rob uses the camera to capture copies of the reality that plays out before him. That reality is often quite ordinary and is far from being a “grand” narrative; he infuses the everyday with a sense of otherness and melancholy. He observes rather than partakes, often looking towards the representation of boundaries and barriers, both physical and imagined. Whilst much of his work might appear to be landscape in nature, it is also deeply social, tackling the subject of man’s interactions with the landscape and also with others. He aims to cross the boundaries with his work.
