Robert Pool

I am an anthropologist and photographer based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I have previously lived in the UK, Spain, Tanzania, Uganda, Cameroon and South Africa. During the last 25 years I have carried out research and photographed in various other European and African countries.

As a photographer my focus is on wildlife and travel photography. Over the past 25 years I have photographed wildlife in many of the national parks and game reserves in Uganda, Tanzania, South Africa, and Namibia. I am currently carrying out anthropological research at the University of Amsterdam on the cultural construction and representation of “wildness” (wildlife, wilderness).  I also teach anthropology and photography at the University of Amsterdam.
