Simon Roberts' photographs have been published and exhibited widely with recent solo shows at the National Media Museum, EX3 Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea (Italy), and Centro Brasileiro Britânico (Brazil). Roberts' images are represented in major public and private collections, including the Deutsche Börse Art Collection, George Eastman House and Wilson Centre for Photography. He is the recipient of several awards including a commission as the official Election Artist by the UK Parliament Committee (2010) to produce a record of the UK General Election. His published monographs include Motherland (Chris Boot, 2007), We English (Chris Boot, 2009) and Pierdom (Dewi Lewis, 2013).
