Geoffrey A Roberts
Photographer, Sydney, Australia. (1981)
My approach to photography is simple, to photograph a place exactly as I find it, and to reproduce it in a detailed and realistic way.
Human intervention in the environment appears in almost all my photographs, and while my subjects are often not beautiful, and perhaps not even particularly interesting to the casual observer, I aim to find form in the scene, and through that, create a meaningful and beautiful image. I design my images upon the geometric elements, emphasising the footprint of society.
My photographs are made with medium and large format cameras, and I print by hand in the darkroom.
