    Robin Friend: The Belly of the Whale

Photography: Passionate, fascinating editorial work from Robin Friend

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Not many people have Gillian Wearing and crocodiles in the same portfolio but Robin Friend does. The reason he keeps getting fantastic commissions is probably because of the sheer passion that drives him to create the images he does. “My work explores the fragile relationship between human beings and nature,” Robin says. “I find this power struggle fascinating. It is all around us. A relationship in flux that is always ebbing and flowing and therefore impossible to predict – apart from the final outcome that is. For that there can only be one winner.” Be sure to check out his Formations series before being informed about the brutality of crocodile hunting in With Sorrow Snare.
