Will Robson-Scott

London born photographer and filmmaker Will Robson-Scott's work focuses on people living on the fringes of society. An early immersion in the world of illegal graffiti writing led to his central role in the publication of two seminal books on the subject: 2009’s critically acclaimed Crack & Shine and its successful 2011 follow-up, Crack & Shine International.

Over the past two years he has created a series of intimate video portraits. Subjects vary widely, from ageing skateboarders with Aspergers Syndrome to Polish martial-arts-fighting rappers undergoing dangerous experimental eye-tattooing procedures to ex-East London football hooligans recalling stories of crime and drug use. His latest film project "CHIRAQ" examines the staggering murder rates in the South and West side of Chicago, and has gained international media attention.

Will Robson-Scott currently lives between NYC and London.
