Robert Darch

Robert Darch is a British artist-photographer based in the Southwest of England. He has published and exhibited widely, and his photographs reside in public and private collections.

His practice is motivated by the experience of place, in which the physical geography and material cultures of places merge with impressions from contemporary culture that equally influence perception. From these varied sources, both real and imagined, he constructs narratives that help contextualise a personal response to place.

Darch’s work was included in Another Country, British Documentary Photography since 1945, by Gerry Badger and published by Thames & Hudson. His work is also part of Facing Britain, curated by Ralph Goertz. The exhibition, accompanied by the eponymous catalogue, is a major touring retrospective of the last sixty years of British Documentary Photography. Martin Parr acquired 39 of Darch’s photographs for inclusion in the Martin Parr Foundation archive.
