Richard Baker is an English reportage photographer whose corporate imagery has been presented in company literature and his photo-essays in the world's image-led magazines.
He committed himself to photography in his mid-twenties, studying Documentary Photography at Newport College of Art where he discovered the alluring words colour and reportage. Taken on by the fledgling Katz Pictures in 1988, as well as a spell with The Observer newspaper, he was also member of the notable Independent Photographers Group (IPG).
He pursues projects that are geographical or merely themes of the incongruous and the everyday: ideas that are semi-topical or merely aesthetically driven.
More recently he has been exploring old haunts in central London and making street pictures with the aim of producing self-published works, adding to projects about recession windows and 9/11.
