Fine art, collage and photography are my tools of expression to pour out the phenomenal beauty and magic of this natural world. My work also continues into bio-programming/hacking (transformation beliefs) and the power of good food and herbs as the new medicine.

Originally from Philadelphia, via Boston, New York City and Connecticut, Robert’s life has been capturing images, in words, in photos, in oil. The pleasure is in the doing.
I am a street photographer moving into the realm of color and landscape. While many subjects are immobile, I attempt to capture scenes that, through lighting, decay or thawing, represent a unique moment.
