Keith Laban was born in the East End of London and went
on to study Illustration and Fine Art at Reigate School of Art.
It was here he had his formal introduction to photography, was
awarded the Sir Alec Issigonis Prize for Art and met his wife.
On leaving college Keith continued with his passion for photography
and began his career as a freelance illustrator, working for
publishers and advertising agencies as well as exhibiting
paintings in the UK and Europe.
In recent years Keith has concentrated on his photographic
work, supplying images to clients such as Hasselblad, The
Royal Horticultural Society and The BBC.
Keith combines his love of the natural world and photography,
striving to capture childhood memories of woodland walks through
carpets of bluebells and autumn leaves. He will often visit
locations time and again in pursuit of the elusive "perfect
moment" and brings a sense of order to what is essentially
a chaotic environment.
Keith also uses photography in his personal work to explore
the boundaries between his work as a painter and photographer,
often shooting on location in the Mediterranean.
Currently living with his wife in Surrey UK.
