Where do you want your work to go next?

I would be thrilled to follow in the footsteps of Steve Mc Curry, one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography, by having an exhibition at la Galerie Got Montréal. For my next series, I would like to shoot the sacred Kumbh Mela. This is quite simply one of the greatest human gatherings in the world with over 100 million people expected to attend the pilgrimage to Allahabad. The Hindu Kumbh Mela, commemorates the victory of gods over demons in a mass bathing ritual. Millions of devotees plunge into the Ganges to wash away their sins and bring salvation.

Where are you from and what attracts you to colour?

I grew up in Washington D.C. For me Washington wasn’t so much a city of monuments as a cluster of villages surrounded by forests and streams. Living with my divorced mother as a rebellious teenager, I often drifted into Glover Archbold Park, a sliver of green that stretches north-south more than two miles from Cathedral Heights to the Potomac River. The city’s woods offered secluded hollows of serenity, a powerful salve in my life at that time.

Alternative Photo Revolution
 
When
March, April, May 2017
 
Where
We are putting a travelling show together that will exhibit in three cities: First Washington DC and New Orleans (March/April  2017) as pop up shows, then back to the Dylan Ellis Gallery in Toronto for the Contact Photo Festival in May 2017.
As you may know our Lambda is back up in operation, which means specific quality film being available for many alternative print options that Bob specializes in. Contact print in Silver Gelatin, Lith Silver Gelatin, Solarization Silver Gelatin, Contact Platinum Palladiums, Contact Duotones of pigment over Palladium, and of course Tri Colour Pigment over Palladium.
Our last two fantastic Contact shows were incredible successes, with Rita Leistner leading the way in 2015 followed this year with Monica Glitz.
Both bodies of work were in tri color pigment over palladium and were excellent examples of what great photography can be.
The idea is to create a large show from photographers from any location willing to work with Bob and create up to two images each of your best work. Whether its colour pigment, silver gelatin or expressive lith prints we will make the decision together and create a one of a kind print that you can be proud of.
