When Robert teaches photography he teaches not just the how but the why of it. And right now he is generously sharing his knowledge in a series of extremely affordable essays. It’s like a mini-course in developing your relationship to your artistic practice. ‘Filling the box’ is about making sure the frame of the photograph contains something of value and quality.
You can read about and buy the essays here.
It was Robert Golden who first suggested that I write about my intuitive camera practice. ‘What’s to say? I thought…I see, I point, I shoot. Job done.’ The poem ‘The broken the chipped, the darkly lit’ (my blog post 8/12/2014) was written in December 2013 and it became the cornerstone piece for my newest stage work ‘Imperfection’. The value of Robert’s advice has amplified over the course of this blog.

Plus - follow the exciting new Democracy project:
Robert’s photographic exhibition ‘Home’ generated so much interest and discussion it generated the multi-stranded Home in Bridport Project which among other things, creates employment, celebrates community and encourages people to strengthen identity and purpose by creating short self-portrait documentaries. The Democracy Project is an exciting new initiative within Home in Bridport, celebrating the Magna Carta, the Bridport Charter and Democracy ‘with theatre, dance, debates, an exhibition, photography, film, fine arts, poetry and music.’
