Roei Greenberg is a London based artist, graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2020. 

His photographic practice is concerned with landscape as a complex intersection between culture, geography and autobiography. He grew up on a Kibbutz in Israel, located on Lebanese border. The concept of boundaries (political and social) and the relations between land, power, belonging and legitimacy are amongst the issues investigated in his work. Combining an objective aesthetic with strong emphasis on research and critical approach, He creates multi-layered photographic perspectives; pictorial and alluring yet seeking to disrupt traditional modes of landscape representation. 


Greenberg’s work has received vast recognition and exposure, showing in museums and galleries such as: Aperture Gallery, South London Gallery, Leeds Art Gallery, The Benaki Museum, the Israel Museum and Webber Gallery, to name a few. His work was nominated and awarded repeatedly over the past years. He was selected for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries in 2019, and his recent body of work entitled English Encounters, was selected by Professor Andreas Gursky, when invited to curate his selection from the RCA 2020 graduates. 

“Greenberg has developed a very idiosyncratic visual language in his work. The landscapes are seductive and almost hypnotizing, drawing the viewer under their spell. But the appearance is too good to be true, because one does not trust the conjured harmony and an irony breaks its way in, which reveals the complexity of these pictures."  (Andreas Gursky)
