Simon Roberts (b.1974) is a British artist-photographer whose work deals with our relationship to landscape and notions of identity and belonging. He has published and exhibited widely and his photographs reside in major public and private collections, including the George Eastman House, Deutsche Börse Art Collection and V&A Collection. In 2010 he was commissioned as the official British Election Artist by the House of Commons Works of Art Committee to produce a record of the General Election on behalf of the UK Parliamentary Art Collection; and in 2013 was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society.
He has published four critically acclaimed monographs, Motherland (Chris Boot, 2007), We English (Chris Boot, 2009) – voted as one of the best photography books of the past decade – Pierdom (Dewi Lewis Publishing, 2013) and most recently Merrie Albion (Dewi Lewis Publishing, 2017).
Outside of his own professional practice Simon is an active public speaker and holds a position as a visiting lecturer on the European Master of Fine Art course at IED Madrid and an Honorary Associate Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Nottingham (2013-2019). He is involved with several not for profit organisations serving as a trustee of Photoworks and an advisor to FotoDocument.
