In walks a dame.

She’s older, wiser, sophisticated, always changing, pushing the envelope, telling a story with just a look, and Rob Dawkins cannot help but love her.

That dame, film.

Whether photography or movies, Rob has been in love with film from a very young age. Raised in a house that encouraged watching movies as art from as young as three when he was shown Star Wars for the first time.

“When I was older,” Rob says, “[my mom] showed me older classics like Casablanca, The Big Sleep, Harvey, Rear Window, Blade Runner, and I just loved the stories and the way they were shot.”

Since then it has been a direct path to the film and photography art world.

“So that, along with the love of photography, really sparked my interest in cinematography and the way one scene, one shot can tell a story. It took me a while to realise that I could combine the two, but now every time I take a photo I’m thinking about what type of story that particular shot can be part of.”

In The Witness, we’re given the reflection of a woman looking out of her high-rise apartment building as someone falls to their demise on this rainy night. 

Each scene is filled to the brim with plotlines, Rob Dawkins manages to tell a plethora of stories with one panel. Stories framed in such a way that the audience sees the entire world he creates through each window but left with enough mystery to want more. 

While each piece he creates works as one individual plot line, the recurring motifs and themes throughout Rob’s work allow for each one of these scenes to be part of a much larger narrative in a dark and gloomy world of intrigue, sabotage and heartbreak.

In walks an unsuspecting individual. Out walks a new fan of Rob Dawkins’s art.
