Photographer Dan Roberts - an eye on street style

“Now it’s like a circus and it’s worse than it’s ever been. There are a lot of people turning up to shows to be photographed and not necessarily going to shows...it’s become monetized in a large way.”   - Dan Roberts, Photographer.

Dan Roberts grew up in Auckland’s Devonport with a love of skateboarding and surfing. Back then he wasn’t very interested in fashion and a role in the industry never crossed his mind. That changed the day Roberts picked up a camera and today he’s a photographer who works alongside the best in the fashion industry.

“I’m trying to interpret what’s happening in the industry at any given time [both] on and off the runway and I try and capture that with what people are wearing on the street,” he says.
