Robert Heier Photography
Robert Heier's photographic images, done in both traditional as well as vastly different contemporary modes, are merely an attempt to recall, recapture and reconstruct the mere joy he has had while traveling abroad. Over the past 25 years, these travels have consisted mainly of exploring and haunting the haunted and obscure backstreets of small towns and villages throughout Western Europe. These once-proud and beautiful buildings and streets, now forgotten and forlom, occupy what is to Robert an > MORE unforgettable oblivion. Their classic and majestic lines from the glorious past, in combination with the peeling stucco and weathered paint of a grim present, create a special magic. In an effort to capture the wonder of these subjects, Robert processes his photos digitally using the latest computer technology and equipment. His enhancements are done in one of two ways. One way is traditional, in effect a romanticized portrayal of the original subject matter. The other approach is definitely abstract or contemporary. In fact, in many of the latter types, the original subjects are virtually unrecognizable, replaced with images perhaps even more thought provoking and timeless than the actual subjects. In eithe case, the process of enhancement and image conversion can take up to several days per image. The results are then printed using special archival paper and inks in a way designed to convey the timeless grace of the original scenes in either a romantic or contemporary way. Robert has exhibited his widely inclusing one-man shows and his work is in a number of private collections throughout the country.^ LESS
