Today photographer Simon Roberts spoke to the #phonar class.

Listen to his guest speech here:

Inspired by August Sander he made a study on people in the landscape. Therefore he travelled to Russia and did a lot of research in terms of context of and in a photography. See his photographs in his online book called “Motherland“.

Furthermore, he spoke about his other projects “We English

and “The Election Project“.
