Oliver Tooke (1990) is a British contemporary non-fiction photographer who works on long term projects.
His projects often work more like novels or short stories, feeling out the beat or rhythm of the time. He is working on a series of projects set in the Arab world and Europe, stemming from his teenage years growing up during the Iraq War and War On Terror, which significantly shaped his world view.
He graduated with an MA Photography from the University of the West of England (2021), and a BA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from the University of Gloucestershire (2014).
he was part of the group exhibition, Vantage Point Sharjah 7, at the Sharjah Arts Foundation in UAE, Grand Prix Finalist at Lodz Foto Festival in 2017, shortlisted for the Bar Tur Photobook Award in 2015 , and was long-listed for the Magnum/Ideastap Photographic Award in 2014.
