Robert Willson: Photographer of the Week


With pleasure and pride, I point you today to another collaboration with a very dear friend of mine, Robert Willson. This week, Robert’s wonderful photographs are being featured at the 591 Photography Blog, based in Sweden. Those of you familiar with Robert’s work, know full well that his striking images speak clearly and eloquently for themselves. That he has allowed me to add my written impressions is indicative of his grace.

You will find a link to the first day’s entry below. I’ll add links to the others as the week unfolds. We thank you for joining us, and we thank the good people at 591 for sharing Robert’s work.

Very nice to say the least, William. I have become a follower of Robert's blog...especially when I saw the lone chair photo with the snow on it.

Kevin: absolutely.

Jan, I knew you’d appreciate what Robert is doing.

Thanks to both of you, too, for the kind comments on the entry at 591.

Robert, the feeling, as you know, goes both ways. Spending time with your images does me a world of good. But most important in this sweetly sorrowing world, they are a positive contribution. They are you, in subtle ways that perhaps you, being you, can never realize. Thanks for such a wonderful experience.

Thank you, kind sir! Your words form quite a picture!

what a wonderful combination of two artists and a brilliant idea to have one's paintings described by someone as eloquent and sensitive to the environment of human existence as yourself

Thanks very much, Rahina. I’ve always loved never quite knowing where words leave off and pictures begin — and, of course, the other way around.
