This website illustrates the imaginative and creative photography of John Brooks. This high quality Fine Art Photographic work specialises in both abstract and semi-abstract landscape and urban images. His relationship with his environment and the emotional response that this creates are what the images are about.

The images are not just about capturing the dramatic but are also about the common place, the familiar and easily overlooked. These may take on an unexpected beauty when isolated and abstracted from their usual context.

His preferred camera and film format is 6cm x 6cm square using a Rollieflex camera or 6cm x 4.5cm with his Bronica, together with two 5" x 4" plate cameras. Since the advent of digital photography he also uses a digital camera using the superb quality and definition afforded by the Leica lens.

The subject matter is extracted from North America, Central and Eastern Europe, North Africa, the continenent of India, East Asia, and the Caribbean.
