Award-winning photographer, filmmaker and artist Ravi Deepres made his Royal Opera House debut in 2008, when his gallery work was exhibited as part of Deloitte Ignite. He has since created video designs for Wayne McGregor’s Woolf Works and Raven Girl (The Royal Ballet) and video projection for Quartett in the Linbury Studio Theatre (The Royal Opera).
Deepres’s work focusses on the intersection of the still and moving image, and involves themes of identity, the use of historical archives, psychology and the subconscious, which are expressed through conceptual documentary, choreographic and kinetically employed aesthetics. His work embraces the potential of collaboration and pushing the boundaries of new technology in creating new artistic languages. He has collaborated with renowned choreographers and institutions including McGregor, Saburo Teshigawara, Phyllida Lloyd, Michael Clark, Palais Garnier, Edinburgh Festival and in theatres and festivals around the world.
His gallery work has been commissioned and exhibited in group and solo shows across the UK and internationally, including at Hatton Gallery, Magnum Photos, Impressions Gallery, Ikon Gallery, Cornerhouse, the Lowry, Recontres d’Arles, Lianzhou Photo Festival and Film and Video Umbrella.
