Robert's work combines graphic and fine art photographic approaches, through which he considers aspects of contemporary consumer culture. In this project he has explored the true understanding of the exotic through the importation of flowers. This work explores the definition and the idea of the exotic in contemporary culture, considering how flora which once was so alien to these shores is now so readily available through mass consumer markets, from the florist to the forecourt. Through Robert's images, he has visually created images which aim to re-establish the essence of 'the exotic', working with the beautiful but often strange structures inherent in such flowers.
