TERRA INCOGNITA

Grant Simon Rogers is a visual artist who lives and works between London & Berlin. His unique style of photography references a mid-twentieth century cinema technique known as “Day For Night” which gives the impression that many of the pictures are made in the night time or twilight hours. Using the available daylight he sets up his camera to make a very dark, underexposed image and then using a hand held flash to relight his subjects, trees and plants. The challenge for him is to make a photograph in the camera and to not post process on the computer. All of the pictures in the collection are straight out of the camera with the bare minimum of post processing. He is passionate about the language used in photography stating that “We, the photographers, make the picture. The camera takes it.”

Among the many influences on his works are a blend of Storytelling, European painting and in particular the films of Powell & Pressburger and Akira Kurosawa.

Trained at Portsmouth College of Art, he is passionate about art education and visual literacy and for all ages. He contributes to the free life long learning programmes at the National Gallery and other museums and cultural institutions.
