Simon Roberts (b. 1974) studied a BA Hons Degree in Human Geography at the University of Sheffield (1996). His photographs have been exhibited widely with recent solo shows at the National Media Museum, UK, EX3 Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea, Italy, and Centro Brasileiro Britânico, Brazil. They are represented in major public and private collections, including the Deutsche Börse Art Collection, George Eastman House and Wilson Centre for Photography.
In recognition for his work, Roberts has received several awards including the Vic Odden Award (2007) – offered for a notable achievement in the art of photography by a British photographer – bursaries from the National Media Museum (2008) and the John Kobal Foundation (2008). Most recently he was commissioned as the official Election Artist by the House of Commons Works of Art Committee (2010) to produce a record of the UK General Election.
He has published two monographs, Motherland (Chris Boot, 2007) and We English (Chris Boot, 2009). He is a member of POC, a network of contemporary photographers.
Roberts’ approach is one of creating wide-ranging surveys of our time, which communicate on important social, economic and political issues. His photographs exhibit a disciplined compositional restraint, a richness of palette, and a wealth of narrative incident.
