Roei Greenberg is a London based - Israeli artist (b.1985)

Royal College of Art MA photography 2018-2020

Greenberg’s practice is concerned with landscape as a complex intersection between culture, geography and biography. The effects of human activity on land, political borders and ecology are among the issues investigated in his works. With the use of large format camera and film, he produces multi-layered photographic perspectives; pictorial and luring, yet seeking to disrupt traditional modes of landscape representation. Ambiguity runs through his works and sews them together into an ongoing dialogue between the mundane and the sublime.
