Peter Rodd Photography

b. 1955. Glastonbury, England

I am interested in - though not exclusively - art, documentary, and contemporary photography.

Art photography is a broad subject: from pictorial landscapes depicting Arcadian visions of the past, early examples of which reminded city dwellers of a lost serenity of pre-industrial times, to abstract and conceptual images designed to stimulate wider thinking.

Documentary photography describes what its title suggests: recording, whether that be family pictures or images of an event or environment.

Contemporary photography here means what an image is about as much as what it is of; what is implicit as well as explicit.

Influenced by Bill Brandt, Paul Hill, Rod Fry, Sebastião Salgado, Graciela Iturbide, and many others.
