Event info

Miniclick is a monthly series of curated photographer talks, with free beer and networking. It is curated by Izzy de Wattripont and hosted by the RPS.

Robin Friend was born in London in 1983, but spent most of his childhood growing up in Melbourne, Australia. He now lives in the town of Lewes with his family. He has a BA from the University of Plymouth and an MA from the Royal College of Art.

Friend’s project Bastard Countryside was published by Loose Joints in 2018. In the same year he collaborated with Wayne McGregor to create and direct Winged

Bull in the Elephant Case for BBC Live - an audacious dance dramatisation of the journey of the National Gallery’s art collection during the second world war.

Friend’s work has been exhibited in galleries and fairs globally ranging from Aperture Gallery in New York to the Pingyao Photography Festival in China, Christies in Paris and at the National Gallery, Somerset House and the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

His work has been collected by the Martin Parr Foundation as well as private collections around the world.
