WHAT MAKES A GOOD IMAGE?
Robin’s work centres around a core belief that a really good image needs to draw the viewer into its frame, and to do this it needs to have a beginning, a middle, and an ending in some form. Responding to what’s in front of the camera, composing the shot and choosing the moment of capture to create that visual narrative is an incredibly complex, nuanced and infinitely variable thing. The moment may take place in a millisecond or it may take several minutes, it may be an off-chance moment or it may take days, weeks, months or even years of planning. Using the art form to tell a visual story is the essence of photography and while 99% of people taking photos don’t necessarily recognise that, it’s essentially what they are hoping to achieve.
