Rob Carter renders highly engaging photographic works which focus on the illusionary movement of still subjects and light. Over the past five years, Carter has traveled through Las Vegas, Hong Kong, Spain, Scotland, Holland, Portugal and Barbados. In his travels, he has captured energetic and aesthetically alluring photographs.

Carter uses a revolving lens camera, leaving the shutter open to stretch the image, and horizontally blur the scene into a spontaneous vision. The process creates a sense of movement from a still image, conveying the experience of traveling itself- disorienting, exciting and somewhat overwhelming. The images are then directly printed, without any digital manipulation.

The London-based photographer runs a design company with his spouse. The couple revolves their projects around the expressive power of light, color and form.
