Solo Exhibition

»TERRA INCOGNITA«

Grant Simon Rogers

La Camera Chiara presents the work of Grant Simon Rogers, a British born Visual artist who lives and works in Berlin.

This exhibition of a beautiful and unique style of photography references a mid twentieth century cinema technique known as Day For Night. The personal challenge for Rogers is to make a photograph in the camera and to keep any post processing to a minimum. He has been developing this singular style of photographic looking over the last decade., after he photographed a tree, using the pop out flash on his camera by accident. This method of study he describes as his “Photopsychotherapy” delighting in the mediative state he relishes while making these pictures. Many of the flora subjects photographed by Rogers have been visited repeatedly over many years, creating a timeless record of the changing seasons in his home cities. Since settling in Berlin, he continues to employ the same highly theatrical approach to his subject gathering and picture making. He is passionate about the importance of shared green spaces in our urban environments and the role they play in communal living and it is worth reminding the viewer that these elegant pictures are made almost entirely within cities.

This Homeric photographic odyssey has consumed him for over a decade and he has no plans to complete it anytime soon. He calls this his Terra Incognita, though most of his pictures are made within a couple of kilometres of his Berlin home.

When confronted with Rogers work his love of Art History, storytelling and vintage cinema is clearly apparent in his work. He is known locally as “The Man Who Flashes at Trees”. For him it is a delight to share how he sees his world. The joy of making them is self evident, especially when encountering them for the first time in the printed, physical form.

Trained at Portsmouth college of Art, Rogers is passionate about art education and Visual Literacy, for all ages. He is a visiting lecturer at may of Londons museums and galleries, Christies Education and Central Saint Martins – University of the Arts, London.

He has exhibited his photographs in solo and group exhibitions in the UK and Europe and this selection of otherworldly photography is his first solo exhibition in Berlin.
