Bob Younger has been photographing since the mid-60’s when he traded his grade-school Brownie Starmite for a 35mm rangefinder. He picked up a 4×5 in the late 60’s and has been working in larger formats ever since. Artistically, his work has gone from dramatic landscapes to closer, more abstract or metaphorical images. In the 20-30 years Bob has discovered the value of spending time with a subject, of developing an understanding of a place or objects, and their relationship to him and the world. This has led to a realization that there is an inherent interconnectedness between the photographer, the subject, the photograph and the person who views the image; that there is an interdependence of all things in the world. The photographer must develop a mindful understanding of his or her relationship to the larger world and to the subject of the photograph; and must wait on that understanding.
