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.

 

Rouleur Online Photo Annual: Paolo Ciaberta

 

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.

 

Capturing the spirit of the sport, a fine selection of exclusive art prints are available at the Rouleur shop.
