Exhibition: Rob Love at The Colour Factory, Fitroy
Rob creates breathtaking photographs of the natural interplay of water and light. The images are captured applying slightly extended shutter speeds without the use of image enhancing software.
Rob was recognised by the US Professional Photographers Association with an Award of Distinction, in 1996. He was invited to address the New Zealand Professional Photographers Association in 1992 and the Institute of Photographic Technology seminar at RMIT University in 2009.
Rob has exhibited widely in Melbourne, including the Photographers Gallery in South Yarra, Gold Street Studios, Rembar Gallery and the MLC Acquisitive Art Exhibition. He was also invited to exhibit in the Leica Gallery, Melbourne.
He has twice been a semifinalist in the prestigious Australian Moran Contemporary Photographic Competition.
Rob Love’s clouds are unique: moody, majestic beings that possess something godlike. I have a fuming cumulonimbus on my wall, with thirteen tiny birds flying across its mouth. These birds are so perfect, I thought Rob must have photoshopped them: he hadn’t. My cloud is alive. It has continued to change & alter (as well as changing & altering me) years after first finding its place on my wall.

The photographs are spiritual, tranquil but with an energy that pulls you into the depth of the waves – you cannot look away.
