Robert Redmond Photography - Brooklyn
A brief biography
My early interest in photography began with a curiosity about my father's Kodak camera. I was particularly taken with the way the camera's pleated material, like a bellows, expanded and contracted. I was also amazed by the immediacy of the camera, the magic of its ability to capture a moment of time, forever. A Sunday rarely passed that my Irish-born father didn't line up his six kids for a photo shoot in front of the stoop to our railway-flat type apartment in Brooklyn's Park Slope. 'Oh, God, not again!' we moaned, inaudibly, of course. When my mother died, my father gathered his old negatives and had a set of prints made for each of his kids. I cherish them.
My most recent work has taken me out of the darkroom of silver gelatin prints into the digital-cyber world of printmaking. From a shameless interpretation of Lucas Cranach's 'Venus and Cupid' to a more phantasmagoric rendering of a heron, or to a surreal take on a broken photo-lamp bulb, I am totally immersed in the excitement of a new direction.
My work is in the collections of Frank Conroy, Daniel Selznick, Dustin Hoffman, and Vincent Sardi.
