“My obvious inclination toward the strange, the weird, and the avant-garde of the art and music scenes would imply that I also lean that way when it comes to photography. With all the options for different washes, digital manipulation, and lacquering, one can make a photo look like pretty much anything else. While I do love a good surrealist photo, I actually tend more toward the classic in both my own photography and in other artists. Working almost exclusively in black and white yet somehow able to capture shading and light grades expertly, Rob Silverman is an excellent example of all that is awesome about classic photography technique. The ability to capture the beauty we find all around us in the real world in all of its stark, unpixelated reality is, in my opinion, something only photography can wholly do as an artistic medium. Not so easy to do, especially in black and white, is the ability to capture the emotions and true feeling of the subjects of this photography; the forlorn energy of a dog in front of an old gas station, the stern and enduring countenance of a Navajo brave in full headdress. Turning motion and light into still life and back while not losing any of the emotive quality and without digital covering is what separates good technique and good eye from good photography, and Mr. Silverman is a good photographer. I don’t even feel the need to make the requisite reference to Ansel Adams here. Silverman has a solid, deeply emotive style and technique all his own. Though I’ve prattled on about his black and whites quite a bit, Rob Silverman has a whole array of photo styles, including commercial and event photos. You can also contact him via the site for pricing on current works or bookings.”
