Exhibition runs through June 13th.


Rob K. & Tony C. - Infrared Exposure with Movie Lights - Hollywood CA - 2009AN OCEAN OF HUMANITYComprising many variations of portraiture – commissioned, candid, studio, personal, travel, and environmental – this is by far my largest and most unruly portfolio, reflecting my fervid curiosity with our species in all its tumultuous forms of self-expression.

Rob K. & Tony C. - Infrared Exposure with Movie Lights - Hollywood, CA
2009 - First printed: 2013

Capturing portraits in infrared light involves long exposures that require subjects to stay still for several seconds. This tends to make them pose in specific ways, creating body language reminiscent of vintage photographs from the late 19th century when less photosensitive media meant that people had to pose for longer than we are used to today.

This image was made in my neighbor Tony C's apartment. The occult arrangements you see in the background are part of his everyday décor.

Round Hole, Square Peg 2 - Photo LA - Los Angeles, CA - 2016
Out There - Los Angeles Art Association/Gallery 825 - 2013

This is the 2nd year in a row that my work was selected for 'Out There'
 with the infrared image above appearing in 2013.


The new piece Sign of Our Time was captured in Trona, CA as part High & Dry, an ongoing collaboration between writer/historian Christopher Langley to survey the legacy of human activity in the deserts of the American West. Trona, a mining town south of Death Valley, will be a focus of our attention in the coming months. Our project can be explored at  www.DesertDispatches.com.
