Roy Mehta
Roy Mehta
Photographer and Senior Lecturer
Since he became a photographer, Mehta's work has regularly engaged in different ways with cultural identity, through images presented in REVIVAL, LONDON 1989-1993 and his other books and projects such as 'DISTANT RELATIONS' and ‘COASTLINE'.
He is drawn to seeing how photography can offer us an opportunity to reflect on our common histories and celebrate our respective identities. His work explores how different cultures and identities touch, engage and interweave around each other. As part of this process he has recently been making new work in Mumbai, India exploring a city that he could have gown up in had his family not moved to the UK. This new work examines second-generation immigration and the resulting cross-cultural fluidity.
In a similar way his work also explores what we consider to be ‘nature’, as in his recent series LOCKDOWN where he uses image and text to interpret the current Pandemic.
His work is in private collections and the permanent collections of Autograph, Historic England, The Library of Birmingham, The Harris Museum and Art Gallery and IKS Collection, Germany.
He is also a senior lecturer on the BA Photojournalism and Documentary course at LCC, London
