Rob Bremner is a British social and documentary photographer born in Wick, a small village in the North of Scotland.

Whilst studying in Wallasey Rob became acquainted with celebrated photographer’s Tom Wood and Martin Parr. He would help out in Tom’s darkroom and spend his weekends following Tom and Martin around the faded resort of New Brighton as they documented the area. Rob was later accepted on to David Hurn’s School of Documentary Photography in Newport, Wales. It was around this time he started to photograph the Everton and Vauxhall areas of Liverpool, then the third most deprived area of Britain.

Rob Bremner’s photos captured the mood of these times, but also the everyday life and spirit of the people.

“It was tough times, but I found everyone to be warm and friendly, and on rainy days they would ask me in for a cup of tea. I left my college Bronica in a pub one night after some dockers invited me for a drink, I returned the next day and they had left it behind the bar for me. I wish I could say I was a socially aware photographer, campaigning against Thatcher’s Britain, but I just felt comfortable taking photos there and liked the people”. – Rob Bremner.
