Robert Brook: photographer, one time film maker, digital artist. In the 1970s and 80s had pictures exhibited in public galleries, purchased by public and private collections, worked on music album covers, won an award for film work. Between 1985 and 1990 worked on a graphics software project. Then specialised in photojournalism for many years before returning to personal and experimental work in 2012, largely made possible by advances in digital technology.



Projects:

London in the margins 1975 - 1990. Series of square format, mainly black and white photos of marginal areas and edgelands of London. First tranche exhibited at the the Serpentine gallery in 1977.

Pond 1975 - 1995. An ornamental garden and pond in Battersea Park depicted over time.

Software project 1985 - 1992. Worked on an application that used a simple command language for producing 3D forms and modifying them with mathematical functions. Eventually aborted due to the decline in usage of Acorn desktop computers.

Environmental journalism 1990 - 2012. Mainly concerned with heavy industry and its consequences. Photos published widely and used in a variety of media. Example >

Night photography 2000 - 2002. Incorporated a series of black and urban night photographs into a website display: UK Nights selected by Yahoo as a Pick of the Day.

35mm traditional street photography collection 1996 - 2004 in association with Photofusion. Observational, rather than subjective, mainly in Northern towns and cities including Blackpool - featured in Mass Photography: Blackpool through the camera >

Night Photography 2010 - 2016. More night photography, but using digital rather than film cameras, and covering areas that are now known to be Red Wall. Pictures were acquired by Corbis Contemporary

CGI series 2014 to present. Digital images illustrating ideas from maths and physics, used in books and journals

The pictures here are all made, not taken, although may contain varying degrees of photographic content. Occasionally the aim is to make them indistinguishable from documentary photographs, but often to suggest a degree of unreality, or even an alternative reality.

All pictures in this series are available as prints, mainly open edition, with a small selection in limited editions.
