Bob’s interest in photography began in 1964 when he received a Kodak Instamatic 104 camera as a Christmas gift. To a 10-year-old boy, Bob said this was pure magic. He thought, just drop in the 126 film canister, pop in a flash cube, and you were good to go. Bob had many happy hours with that camera photographing pets, friends, and family. Through the years, being Bob was self-taught and worked in several formats including 35mm, 6X7cm medium format, and 4X5in large format. Bob now works exclusively in digital. He is an elected artist member of the South County Art Association in Kingston, RI and the Mystic Arts Center in Mystic, Ct. His past memberships include the Wickford Art Association in Wickford, RI and the Connecticut Academy For The Arts in Avon, Ct. To date, Bob’s images have been included in over 150 open, juried and invitational exhibitions and his work can be found in private collections throughout New England as well as New York, Pennsylvania, and the Netherlands. Bob has always had a love for traveling, so it seemed only natural that the two would one day be combined. Over the last several years Bob has traveled extensively throughout the United States and Canada, photographing the vast landscapes and wildlife. The images that Bob has selected for this show are some of his personal favorites and all from past travels. It is Bob’s hope my hope that you enjoy viewing these works as much as he has enjoyed creating them.
“Science and art have in common intense seeing, the wide-eyed observing that generates empirical information. Beautiful Evidence is about how seeing turns into showing, how empirical observations turn into explanations and evidence.” – Introduction to Beautiful Evidence, Edward Tufte, 2006
He believes that great photographs start with a vision, execution with a camera, post processing to nurture and shape that vision and printing on the right paper for the image so others can appreciate what he saw and felt with nothing more than their eyes. He authors Sunday Street, a weekly blog that celebrates the love of the photograph and he helps others become better photographers through individual lessons. firstname.lastname@example.org
