Rob Wilson
Born in the UK, but now based in Ottawa, Canada, I have been a photographer for almost twenty years. My work has mostly consisted of personal documentary projects along with private commercial work. 
Along with photography, I am also an educator and have worked in higher and tertiary education for most of the last 18 years. I have lived in multiple countries including South Korea and the UAE, and have travelled to over 50. 
There are many photographers who inspire me. These include Raghubir Singh, Sabastiao Salgardo, Steve McCurry, Alec Soth, Don McCullin, Andreas Gursky, Thomas Struth, Joel Meyerowitz, and Harry Gruyaert.
I use Sony equipment for most of my work. 

I also write for FRAMES Magazine including the popular Look Closer column.

This website is mainly devoted to his long-term project 'There is nothing to see here in Scarborough', but also features other recent work.

There is nothing here to see in Scarborough

This is a long term project that documents the Toronto district of Scarborough. Scarborough is well known for its reputation for being dull and dangerous. The reality is different.
This project seeks to dispel this undeserved reputation as well as explore how we relate to our suburban and urban environments. Scarborough may not always be pretty, but there is always something to see here.

Other Work

The 'other work' section features a variety of the best images from some of my other projects. The Last of the Bollywood Heroes and Icelandic Journey have both been featured in FRAMES Magazine's digital editions.
