Roger Bamber's photography is well known for their distinctive, often wryly humorous, style and strong visual impact.
Roger Bamber trained in design, has been a photojournalist since 1965 and in the course of his 43-year career his work has been published in every British national newspaper and scores of magazines world-wide.
He has twice been British Press Photographer of the Year and when he was travelling the world covering everything from wars to rock and pop he was twice News Photographer of the Year.
For 18 years Roger Bamber has been part of the Guardian's celebrated photographic team and his work with them has won him many awards for feature photography.
He was born in Leicester and moved to Brighton in 1973. Since then his adopted home town and its people have starred much of his photography.
When Brighton and Hove made a successful bid for city status, it was Roger who took the series of iconic photographs which helped convince the judges that there is something very special about this particular stretch of seaside.
In 2005 Roger Bamber was awarded an honorary Master of Arts degree by the University of Brighton, "for his distinguished photo-journalism and the wealth of photography of Brighton inspired by the town during his career."
