"Rob Allen is a photographic artist and educator working in Toronto. He has been a working as a professional photographer since 1989, pursuing his personal projects in his own time as well as exhibiting in solo and group shows. He holds a BFA and an MFA from the School of Image Arts at Ryerson University. While fully immersed in new technologies, Allen simultaneously explores the disappearing camera crafts of the twentieth century. 

Recently, Allen has branched out into motion-picture production, still attentive to the rewards of patient observation. Allen enjoys thinking and working with ideas around the "Extended Portrait". The notion of the “extended portrait” has a long history in photography and implies capturing a multitude of revealing moments as well as the possibility of certain moments lasting longer than others."
