Robert Vizzini (New York)
Robert Vizzini was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., in 1952. Early influences include the new medium of television and images from the first years of space exploration. A chance encounter with Edward Weston’s photographs also created a marked impression. The photographer’s work, featured on a Today show segment in 1960, captured a world of beauty in nature and everyday objects through still lifes and images of the California coast. “In a real sense, he taught me to see.” says Robert, who finds in the expanse of nature a freedom he has been looking for from childhood—release from painful self-absorption and a trust in the eternal. This feeling of liberation fuels his drive to pursue photography and accounts for much of the subject matter he chooses.

Robert lives in New York City and has produced portfolios from his travels to Cuba, Tuscany, Nebraska, Cape Cod, Miami, Nova Scotia, Death Valley, and Mono Lake. He has made a recent trip to Iceland to photograph its volcanic terrain, and plans to return there. His photographs have been shown in numerous exhibitions since 1994 and are held in many private and public collections, among them the Bibliotèque Nationale de France in Paris and the Southeast Museum of Photography in Daytona Beach, Fla. Robert was the first recipient of the International Photography Awards, New Discovery Award in 2003. Visit his new Web site - robertvizzini.com

"I blame you for the moonlit sky
and the dream that died
with the eagle's flight
I blame you for the moonlit nights
when I wonder why
are the seas still dry?
Don't blame this sleeping satellite."
