Bob Mazzer was born in the East End of London and though he has lived both in and out of London since the late `60s, his East End roots are a key ingredient of his work and character. He was given his first camera, an Ilford Sporty, for his Bar Mitzvah and from then on has been a photographer, taking his first photos in 1963.
Bob attended Hornsey College of Art during the eventful years of the late sixties, enjoying the freedom and new ideas generated during the famous Sit In, a formative element of the counter culture of the day. As a young photographer he was part of the London scene, worked regularly for Oz and Time Out magazines and exhibiting at The Photographers Gallery, The Serpentine Gallery, The Bibliotheque in Paris and Photo Festivals in Arles and Cologne.
