Bob moved to Minneapolis in 2011 and made an immediate impact on the fine art photography scene, taking second place in a juried exhibit at the Minneapolis Photo Center. Originally from New York, he moved here after spending 17 years in Milwaukee and Southeast Wisconsin. It was there and for the past 20 years he became immersed in photography. While mostly self-taught, he has studied with other fine art and landscape photographers, such as Larry Datillio and William Neill.
Bob’s work has been featured in several galleries in the Milwaukee area and he has had numerous images published in landscape and travel magazines. His work ranges from traditional natural landscapes to urban landscapes and street photography. Since moving to Minneapolis, Bob’s work was featured on local public television (tpt2) in a documentary and published book, Capture Minnesota, featuring photography about Minnesota.
“Much of my work tends to focus on the natural environment and the mystical presentations that nature provides in its organic blend of light, texture and patterns. My goal is to create an image that heightens the viewer’s senses and emotions and takes them to a place they know or a place they are intrigued to be. When creating images of the natural landscape, morning is my favorite time. The sensation of going from darkness and silence to watching the world come to life as the sun rises is always something I find to be magical and special.”
