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 there, using whichever style of image-making that provides sense to that journey. Another recurring subject is what has been termed the “mundane” or “neutral”; those everyday things we fail to notice until they’re recorded photographically, which makes us stop and reflect.

Occasionally I'll even try different things.


My work has been exhibited around the world, and is held in both public and private collections.

Aside from making my own photographic art, I'm also a voracious consumer of photography, particularly in the form of the photobook, and especially those of a Japanese origin. The photobook as object is never really far from my thoughts... I'm beginning to explore with writing too, through essays on photography, reviews of exhibitions, blogging, and of course, through Twitter.

Important note: I don’t really have the trademark on the name "Rob". It started out as a bit of an ironic joke but sort of stuck.
