About me
Theo Deproost is a fine-art, editorial and advertising photographer, based in the UK. He studied Photography at Falmouth University before moving to London to pursue a career in the photography industry. Initially, Deproost continued to develop his practice by working for some of the top photographers in the country, whilst always making time to produce his own fine-art projects. Today, he still understands the value and importance of balancing commercial and fine-art work to continue honing his practice to the highest level. Theo Deproost’s work displays a clear and unifying objective - to nurture a more exploratory, imaginative and gratifying approach to viewing the world around us. Deproost strives to combine a high level of technical ability with an inquisitive creativity that was nurtured during his studies and subsequent career. Deproost’s work has been featured by Creative Review, Wallpaper*, the British Journal of Photography, Paper Journal, Rakes Progress, Paris Photo Prize, PDN Photo Annual, International Photography Awards, FIX Photo Festival and the British Photography Awards.
Projects
  • Unfamiliar
    UnfamiliarUnfamiliar is a collaboration between Theo Deproost, physician associate Debbie Jegede and the museum team at the Royal College of Physicians. “…Theo and Debbie identified objects from within the depths of our museum stores which intrigue, surprise and delight them. Debbie’s clinical curiosity and Theo’s creative eye bring together the worlds of medicine and art, as they reinterpret items from our medical and fine art collections…” “…Theo’s photographs offer new, altered perspectives that chal
  • Re:Collect
    Re:Collect"Re:Collect is a collaboration between artist Theo Deproost and Museum of the Home. This work also forms part of an on-going project in which the artist has been exploring the stored collections held by museums across the country. His aim is to bring the hidden into the light and to create new narratives around the objects. The images that he has made are striking, not just in their beauty, but also in their technical mastery. In order to capture such fine detail Deproost uses complex technical
  • Stasis
    StasisStasis explores the social and cultural experience of the Covid-19 pandemic. Each object in the series represents an industry, event or activity that has been drastically affected by the pandemic over the last two years, including sports, travel, work, weddings and live performance. The short-term impact of Covid-19 has been obvious, but the long-term damage to our lives and wider culture is, as yet, unclear. Hundreds of businesses, both small and large, have been either financially crippled or
  • 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.

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.

  • 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
