Robert Turner : Rare Places in a Rare Light
$25.00 Product Number: 262891
Robert Turner has been working professionally with a camera for more than thirty years. Before turning to images of the natural world he worked in film. As president of Spectrum Films, Inc. he shot on locations from the high Andes of Peru to the streets of Manhattan. He and his partners wrote and directed more than sixty non-fiction films. Their productions were honored with forty-six national and international film festival awards.
Bob now devotes all of his energies to large format, fine art, landscape photography, logging 30,000 miles a year in pursuit of the light on the land. His work will be featured in a number of museum, art fair, and gallery shows in the upcoming year, and hangs in private collections across the United States, Europe, and Asia. His prints also reside in numerous corporate collections, including those of A G Edwards, Deloitte & Touche, Goldman Sachs, ResMed, and Sprint. His images are identified by their strong composition, rich use of color, and sense of depth. They are sold in galleries in New York, Denver, Santa Fe, Los Angeles, and Newport Beach, California, as well as Jakarta, Indonesia.
The traveling exhibit, ROBERT TURNER: RARE PLACES IN RARE LIGHT, was hosted recently by the Harvard Museum of Natural History as well as venues in San Diego, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Cody, Wyoming and Napa Valley, California.
In Spring 2007 Bob was commissioned by the Boston Pops Orchestra to create a ninety-image photo montage which was projected on a forty-five foot screen above the Boston Symphony Hall stage during two performances of Dvorak’s New World Symphony.
Bob grew up steeped in the natural history of the forests of northern New Jersey and the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. A longtime member of the Audubon society, he is an avid conservationist. He studied anthropology and fine art at the University of Colorado. After college he lived and worked in highland Peru for several years. When not traveling the back roads of the country he lives with his wife in Del Mar, California.
