Rob Kavanagh | Photography | About
Everyone’s a photographer these days.

I do it because I can’t really help it.

I see things. Little juxtapositions and oddservations that everyone else surely notices, but I just can’t leave them be.

I see things that aren’t even there too. Like a narrative playing out in a scene. Or, a surrealist take on the inanimate or ordinary. Well, it’s faster than painting it.

It seems my brain is hardwired for recurrent themes. There’s a bit of an obsession with details. Chiaroscuro. Cloudscapes. And cards.

A lot of this undoubtedly stems from the inspiration I’ve stolen over the years from the likes of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bill Brandt, Alfred Stieglitz (for the clouds), Elliot Erwitt, Martin Parr, Gregory Crewdson and most recently Trent Parke.

And, like most of them, I strive for purity. I prefer natural light, and working in-camera. Alright then, maybe a little Photoshop from time to time.


Sales:


If you’d like a print to call your own, then you can buy one right here on this website. You can opt for a quick turnaround lab-quality professional print. Or, an archival-quality giclée print. These ones are fussed over, stamped and signed by me.

Unless otherwise noted, I edition my work like publishers do with books. First edition, second edition and so on.
