Rohan Reilly is a self-learned fine art photographer and gallery owner based in Kinsale, Cork, Ireland. Formerly a record label owner, producer, and DJ, Rohan lived in Barcelona, Spain for several years. Inspired by the historic art and architectural scenes, he developed a fascination for the works of Calatrava and Gaudi and soon after took to his craft.

Rohan’s initial work focused on the architecture of the city, but he quickly began to focus on the abstract landscape of the Catalonian coast.

Influenced by the work of English photographer Michael Kenna and Japanese minimalist artist Hiroshi Sugimoto, Reilly was also inspired by the music he produced and created as a DJ.

Music was a catalyst for his work with images that reflect the control of a composer who creates simple uncluttered compositions, reducing a scene to the essential elements and drawing the viewer in to the textures, tones, and composition.

Reilly uses long exposures to draw out the essential elements of a scene.  His images are enigmatic and compelling, inviting us into a monochromatic world of clean lines and powerful shapes.

 In 2013 Rohan travelled to Japan to photograph the unique and minimalist images of the Japanese countryside. He also developed an appreciation for Zen philosophy and the aesthetics of Wabi Sabi.

His work became more minimal and abstract as he discovered Japanese influences while utilizing the form, shapes, and lines that he had observed in the architecture in Barcelona.

Rohan has received awards from many prestigious organisations including  The World Photography Organisation, The Prix De La Photographie in Paris, International Photography Awards, Grand Prix de la Decouverte, UK Landscape Photographer of the Year, and Black and White Spider Awards.

He exhibits regularly in Ireland and has been published in magazines and newspapers including The Irish Sunday Times, The Independent, Photography Week, and Dodho Magazine.

When not running his gallery he photographs and teaches popular photography workshops across Ireland and Europe.
