About me
Theo Deproost is a commercial and fine-art photographer, based in London. Theo studied BA (hons) Photography at Falmouth University before moving to London to pursue a career in the photography industry. Initially, Theo continued to develop his practice by working under some of the top photographers in the country, whilst always making time to produce his own fine-art projects. Today, Theo still understands the value and importance of balancing commercial and fine-art work to continue honing his practice to the highest level. Although Theo’s fine-art work ranges between landscape and still-life, there is a clear and unifying objective - to break down a subject to its core components of shape, texture and colour and present it to the viewer in an unconventional, modern and compelling way. With all his work, Theo Deproost strives to nurture a more exploratory, imaginative and gratifying approach to viewing the world around us. Over the last two years, Theo’s commissions include projects for ITV, LuminAID, Cotopaxi and Women To Look Up To, whilst his fine-art work has featured in the British Journal of Photography, Paris Photo Prize, PDN Photo Annual, International Photography Awards, FIX Photo Festival and the British Photography Awards. Theo will also be opening his first solo exhibition on 14th March 2020 at Museum In The Park, Stroud, UK.
Projects
  • Stasis
    StasisPersonal project exploring the social and cultural experience of lock-downs and social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Still Works
    Still WorksShot in the workshop of knife-maker, Stuart Mitchell. Rather than focusing on the sharpened and shining finished products, these images honour the erosion, scars and callouses that adorn the tools and machinery of the workshop, formed from decades of hard, unforgiving work. When combined with the enticing textures of the raw materials that will form the knives, the workshop becomes a fascinating and beguiling visual experience.
  • ITV Creates
    ITV CreatesFrom January 1st 2019 ITV launched a new on-screen identity project across the ITV main channel. Every week new idents are showcased, with a different interpretation of the logo created by a wide range of artists. All the work is influenced by ITV, it's programmes or the artist’s personal relationship with ITV and television itself. The project aims to reflect ITV's ongoing commitment to creativity, giving a platform to UK talent and giving a unique and inspiring new look each week of the year.
  • Unknown Valleys
    Unknown ValleysThis project aims to blur the lines between what is considered 'Landscape' or 'Still Life' photography. Throughout nature there are countless similarities of form, purpose, colour and structure, where the only primary difference is scale. For instance, the structure of an atom is not unlike the structure of our solar system and a tiny shrub is still essentially the same as a giant redwood, in functionality and purpose. Unknown Valleys explores the great landscapes of a smaller world; one that we
  • Lost In Time
    Lost In TimeThe full collections of museums are always so much larger and more eclectic than the comparatively small selection of items on display to the public. I decided that a photographic project based around the 'hidden' items in a museum's stores could be incredibly compelling, both visually and educationally; I think many people are unaware of the work that goes on behind the scenes in a museum and the huge value of a well maintained and varied archive. This series portrays the incredible breadth of
