Stuart has been a photographer since 1983, initially shooting for magazines and design companies. During the 90s he concentrated on photographing for advertising agencies, with clients including Volkswagen, IBM, Sony, Ford, Microsoft and Volvo.
The subjects he photographs vary from people to architecture to landscapes. He often uses hard directional sunlight or flash in order to gain stark, high-contrast images. He shoots exclusively in black and white and prints himself.
Redler takes photographs of unusual architecture in unexpected ways. The intense contrasts of shades of black and white and his use of strong light gives Redler’s photographs a stark and unique quality.
Architectural features take on abstract forms. Buildings become landscapes of pattern and texture. Redler shoots exclusively in black and white and prints his own works.
Redler photographs buildings from all over the world and has particular interest in designs by architects such as Santiago Calatrava, reiterating the organic nature of the buildings in the angles and view points of his images.
Redler has received many awards, including six from the Association of Photographers, who awarded him a Gold Medal in 2000 for his portfolio of Architectural Images. He has also received Graphis, PDN New York and Communication Arts Awards, amongst others.
Stuart was born in Somerset and studied economics until attending LCP in London to study for a Photography Degree. As well as appearing in various private collections, his work is included in the permanent collection at the National Portrait Gallery in London and has been exhibited at the V&A Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
