Lot Details

Orville Robertson, 1957-

"My images are defined by the simple aesthetic of balancing a “child’s curiosity,” and the informal way children look at the world around them, with an adult’s learned need for structure and meaning to “make sense of it all.”

For me, street photography possesses a wonderful energy. Passersby and their self-made world create a dynamic relationship that is continuously changing – before, during, and after I have captured a part of this world with my camera. How I photograph these scenes reflects much of who I am, where I have been, and where I am going. I love being a photographer and having the opportunity to let others see the world I perceive.” - Orville Robertson
