In his talk, Bob will speak about his evolution from political photographer to the world of fine arts.
Bob Burgess was a White House Staff Photographer from 1979 to 1981 and is a member of the White House Press Photographers. His images are included in the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Walter Mondale archives, and Time Magazine chose one of his images as Picture of the Year. He was a still photographer for Ken Burns’ The Civil War, The Capitol, and Jazz. His current images are handled by Getty Photos.
Bob has participated in many group exhibits including at George Mason University, Open Shutter Gallery, Durango, Colorado, and in Richmond, Virginia. His book, Finding Paris, was published in 2010.
Of the photographs included in In Color Bob says “As a working photographer in the Washington, D.C. area for 35 years the formula for success was simple: f8 and be there. When more time became available, the pace slowed down and the luxury of choosing the moment and the light to capture an image became an option, things changed. This is a collection of photographs seen while traveling and chasing light along the way.”
