The artist says of his work “Whether one approaches who and where we are from either a scientific or spiritual perspective we ultimately arrive at the same conclusion; we’re all in this together. Whatever lies within us that allow us to be touched or moved is the same in all of us. Overtly the work is presented within a framework of individual portraits and the environment in which these individuals live. The varied manifestations of beauty help to facilitate the illusion of separateness. The reality is that it’s all just facets on the same diamond.”

He was commissioned by WBBC to be the stills photographer on the BBC Four documentary “Bob Harris My Nashville” and “Back to Beth’s” which aired in November 2014 in the UK. Every day one of Bob’s photographs is seen by thousands of people all over the world through his online blog Daily Dose.

In conjunction with the exhibit, the Customs House will host a gallery talk with the artist and Paul Polycarpou, Editor of Nashville Arts Magazine, on Saturday, June 13th, at 6:00pm. This event is open to the public.
