Welcome to the 2016 Rouleur Online Photo Annual.
Over the New Year period, contributing photographers for Rouleur will be selecting their favourite images from the cycling season.
This week, we present Rouleur photographer Robert Wyatt. Robert’s documentary eye sees joy in unexpected juxtapositions and brings colour and energy to his editorial and commercial images.
His work is informed by a knowledge of the traditions of street photography and a respect for the craft of image-making. Robert often involves bystanders and unstaged events in his images, lending them a loose filmic and narrative quality.
