In 1984 Robert Peek finished his education at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Right away he started up his business in a small department store. After three years, he moved up to a former gym, located in the north of Rotterdam, which he turned into a professional Studio fully equipped.
As a photographer, Robert Peek feels at home in various fields such as fashion photography, advertising and stills in which he works for several international brands. He is well known for his excellent sense of lighting, whether it concerns fashion, portraits, food or (technical) products.
Most impressive, is his personal work including travel photography, made whilst visiting Europe, the USA and China. It quickly becomes clear that Peek focuses on the places whose abandonment is best expressed. This could be well-attended areas such as supermarkets, restaurants or (flea) markets but also in the countryside. The slightly non-saturated look gives his photos a certain dreariness, which runs through his entire work and completes the concept. When he is doing a few portraits, they stand out with their melancholy facial expressions and posture as well.
The Power Flower idea came up, crossing a field filled with thistles, on a windy day in Spring.
