Rob Stead


After a 25 year career in IT, writing software and supporting London based charities, I turned my hand to house renovation before starting a long held dream to study photography at Ulster University (2019-2021).

Well Grubbed Old Mole is my photography project and is a reflection on my time from the Brexit Referendum to the end of 2020.

Whilst thinking Brexit is a retrograde step for the UK it nevertheless pushed me to explore new things, including living in Ireland. Perhaps that's what Brexit was all about; pushing people to try new things. If so the outcome might be a good one.
