My prints and cards can be found in the Visitor Centre at the Pump Rooms seven days a week. I also have a selection of prints and framed pictures at the ArtsTrail Gallery on the upper floor of the Royal Priors shopping centre. You can browse all my work on my website and you can purchase from there as well. www.hilaryrobertsphotography.com You will find my contact details on the last page of my website. If you would like something different, or to discuss what might be available, please phone or email me. Arrangements can be made to post items if delivery or collections are not an option.
I have been involved in photography for over thirty years and I am a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and a Master of the International Federation of Photographic Art. However, I tend to see myself these days as an image maker rather than a photographer because although all the components of my work always start out in my camera, there is usually a lot of manipulation involved. I spend days, sometimes weeks, removing unwanted elements, adding others, harmonizing colours, and applying different, often 'painterly' effects to enhance the finished work.
My main objective is that people looking at my pictures feel good - about the world, about themselves, about life. This is especially important at this time, when it is so difficult to feel optimistic. ALL proceeds from the sale of my work go towards supporting a severely disabled little boy in Cuba with essential medical equipment and other items which are not available there.
My images come from this country and anywhere I travel, especially the wonderful island of Cuba. Some, especially my flower images, come from my home studio. I look for beauty, strangeness, humour, striking colour, amazing texture or the perfect light.
I produce giclée prints on a top quality professional printer and I always use textured, archival, acid free art paper, together with archival inks. This ensures that, given reasonable care, my images will still be giving pleasure in one hundred years' time!
