Si Barber was born in Norwich, UK in 1967. After studying photography at Blackpool and the Fylde College he worked around the North of England for a number of national newspapers and magazines before returning to Norfolk where he continues to freelance.
"Although I was born in Norfolk, as my father was in the forces we moved around a lot.
Norfolk to me was a place that was often talked about but seldom visited.
At that time it existed largely as an exemplar of England - a place where all that was good about Britain existed. Since returning I've been interested in exploring the gap between the childhood myth and my adult reality."
