Robert Falconer – Land of the Fiery Dragon

October 9, 2018 @ 20:00 - 22:00

Robert first picked up an SLR camera when he was 12 years old. An interest in photography developed from his father taking him to see steam trains. Before long Robert built up a passion for photography and soon turned his camera towards photographing landscapes.

Robert still has a passion for photographing steam trains and as well as photographing them in UK he has also photographed them in USA, Cuba, South Africa and China.

After leaving school Robert’s dream was to become a professional Photographer so he went on to study photography for 4 years, gaining a National Diploma in Sheffield and a Higher National Diploma in Blackpool.

There have been many high points over the years from working for Colin Garratt, a renowned railway photographer, for a short period to launching his first book called “The Peak District – A Winters Tale” and a second book called ‘Preserved Steam in Derbyshire’.

The show features 3 trips Robert made to China in 1999 and 2000 to photograph some of the world’s last working steam trains in dramatic settings and weather conditions, sometimes down to -30c windchill. As well as the steam trains Robert also photographed the amazing culture of China and its people including well known landmarks such as the Great Wall and Beijing.
