Artist Statment, Robin Boger
To travel by land is to own your journey.
To fly—all eye—everything between
departure and arrival is fantasy.
When I travel, I look for visual markers of how decisions made over time in dealing with the universal problems of survival have shaped societies. I photograph people in their social environment and use words to express my feelings at the moment I capture the image, inviting the viewer to join me in looking into these images, not just at them. Using words and images, I consider what made those fugitive moments special as I search for the timeless in the temporal.
