Based in Cornwall, the Southwest of England, Robert Reader has been a freelance photographer and illustrator for 15 years. Much of his personal work utilizes polaroid film. Mainly shooting with an early 70′s Polaroid sx-70 folding camera, his ongoing project is capturing life and culture from around the sea. Drawn to instant film’s distinctive color values and washed out hues, Polaroid gives a fresh viewpoint on surf culture.
