Simon Roberts (b.1974) is a prominent visual artist hailing from Brighton, UK. Renowned for his expansive, tableau-style photographs capturing the essence of the British landscape, Roberts’ artistic repertoire extends to encompass video, text, and installation pieces. This multifaceted approach allows him to explore profound themes of identity and belonging, as well as the intricate interplay between history, place, and culture.
He has exhibited widely and his photographs reside in major public and private collections, including here at Pallant House Gallery, the George Eastman House, Deutsche Börse Art Collection and the Victoria & Albert Museum.
In 2019, Roberts’ exhibition Inscapes at Pallant House offered a photographic meditation on the hinterland of Sussex, exploring how we connect to our local landscapes and how we capture the essence of a place. He produced a series of photographic, video- and sound-based landscape studies.
