Series 1: Prints, 1989-2008
Biographical / Historical:
Robert L Covington is a New York state based photographer specializing in images of the built environment and natural world including images using the stereographic technique. His stated purpose is using photography for " its ability to provide a viewer an experience that is, at its heart, the same experience that drove me to take the picture. This ability to recreate an experience, unconstrained by time and place, is the essential power of the medium. This does not minimize the importance of the picture, but sees it as a part of a larger process, not the end point...I photograph in two modes with multi-image collages capturing the experience of looking around while stereo photographs capture the experience of the looking at details."
