London Independent Photography is delighted to invite you to an evening with the renowned British landscape photographer Simon Roberts.

Simon Roberts is a British 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 most recently he was made an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society.

He has published three critically acclaimed monographs, Motherland (Chris Boot, 2007), We English (Chris Boot, 2009) – voted as one of the best photography books of the past decade – and Pierdom (Dewi Lewis Publishing, 2013). Simon's new book Merrie Albion (Dewi Lewis Publishing, 2017) will be on show and will form part of the evening's talk.

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 (2013-2016). He is involved with several not for profit organisations, serving as a trustee of Photoworks and an advisor to Fotodocument. He is a member of POC, the European photographic collective.
