First of all let me state up front that I am a very close friend of Robb's and on top of that a fellow Wet Plate Photographer so I'm not going to claim much objectivity in posting this about his new book "Still". However I thought there might be some here that would be interested in knowing about his new efforts to document modern day Cowboys. There is a wide range of work in the book--starting with new portraits that are close ups which informed most of his first book 'Revealing Character', to more wide angle portraits that include full bodied, multiple people and in some cases a combination of landscape and portrait mixed together. I enjoyed 'Revealing Character' but think 'Still' is much stronger and to be honest printed more beautifully.
Robb also included some portraits that are distressed, some naturally from the process itself and or accidental mistakes and some manually through his efforts of experimentation. The ones that are severly distressed I didn't connect with as much as the ones that were distressed more subtlely but it's a big book with lots to choose from so you ought to find some very inspiring work even if you don't connect with each and every image.
If you enjoy Wet Plate Collodion or portraiture its a great effort and I'm happy for all the work he put into it. It shows.
