Robert’s documentary eye sees joy in unexpected juxtapositions and brings colour and energy to his editorial and commercial images. His work is informed by a knowledge of the traditions of street photography and a respect for the craft of image-making. Robert often involves bystanders and unstaged events in his images, lending them a loose filmic and narrative quality.
Robert Wyatt was born in Bristol and graduated with a BA in Photography at West Surrey College of Art in Farnham (now University of the Creative Arts). Robert is one of only two photographers whose work was included in the 1994 New Contemporaries exhibition in London.
