Tony Worobiec studied Fine Art at The University of Newcastle upon Tyne and spent 18 years as head of a large design faculty in Dorset. He has won awards in photography the UK and internationally, and has exhibited in London's Barbican Gallery, The Independent Photographers Gallery, The Fox Talbot Museum and Bradford's National Museum of Photography. His work is in the permanent collections of The Royal Photographic Society and The Fox Talbot Museum. Tony regularly writes articles for photographic magazines both here in the UK and America. He is the author of 15 books, the latest which , "Abandoned On The Plains; Fragments Of An American Dream" has recently been published. Nearly 200,000 copies of his books have been sold worldwide and have been translated into Dutch, German, Spanish, Taiwanese, Mandarin, Russian and rather fittingly Polish. Finally, the publishers RHE are shortly to publish "Photographing Landscape; Whatever The Weather" which is the subject of Tony's latest course with MyPhotoSchool. Possibly his most prestigious project to date is one he shared with his wife Eva, which resulted in the much acclaimed "Ghosts In The Wilderness; Abandoned America". This iconic book is often quoted by colleges and universities as the definitive documentary on the abandoned communities of the American High Plains. Published in 2003, it was very enthusiastically reviewed in The Guardian, The Independent, The Washington Post and Stern Magazine in Germany. Press comments include; "...desolate, moody and achingly sad...stunning.." - The Independent "...eerily beautiful images of provincial America...." - Stern "This book is stunning from cover to cover!" - The Guardian.
