Robert Ashton ~ Everything is true

Robert Ashton studied Photography in the 1970s at Prahran College under Paul Cox and Athol Shmith, and first exhibited his work at Brummels Gallery of Photography (Australia’s first gallery devoted specifically to photography) 1973.

Since that time he has been exhibiting continuously and has work held in many of the public collections in Australia including National Gallery of Victoria, Art gallery of NSW and National Gallery of Australia. His work is also held in private collections in USA and Europe.

His main area of practice has been in landscape and particularly the local landscape along the west coast of Victoria, where he has been living since 1982.

His work embraces a range of photographic mediums from digital to large format analogue, in particular photogravure printing and more recently wetplate collodion.

Robert Ashton’s work embraces an interaction between light and space, between control and chance, always looking for the place where the literal meets the abstract.
