All we can say is "Wow" in response to Rob Smith's presentation at Lane Cove last night. If you missed the night, you have missed one of the major highlights of the year. Rob took us on a journey through his evolution as a photographer, punctuated by humour, pathos and images that oozed feeling. Rob's presentation centred on the integration of stills, sound, video and music and had the audience mesmerised throughout, so much so that there was barely a breath taken during the duration of Rob's visual extravaganza.
Rob has an amazing passion for photography and his motto is "If it moves you, shoot it " Note the placement of the comma. His work ranges from an obsession with birds, "ornithotitus" (possibly a made up word), described as an uncontrollable desire to put birds into photographs, through to current projects that deal with the massacre at Myall Creek in 1838, all of which are approached with a creative eye and an ongoing passion for photography.
