Photography: Yorkshire photographer Robert Chilton takes terrific portraits

Bradford-born photographer Robert Chilton has a formidable talent for creating simple, bold images that turn all the mundanity of daily life into something acutely interesting. He shoots dilapidated houses, the fringes of allotments, pylons, flower beds and rock faces – all fairly straightforward stuff – but manages to imbue each image with a poignant sense of narrative and purpose; as though a momentous event might be about to occur. He’s also a brilliant portrait photographer. Witness the man with a rabbit, the woman and her dog and a number of bearded eccentrics. Lovely!
