Still Life series for Hallmark Collection; DS Annual

26 Nov. 2001

Mike Robinson's work was recently on display in the Hallmark Photographic Collection exhibit in Kansas City. Those who attended the 2001 Daguerreian Society Symposium had the opportunity to examine Mike's group of six still life views in quarter plate -- "Astronomy", "Botany", "Physics", "Autopsy", "Literature", and "Photography" -- which were commissioned by Hallmark.

For those of you who missed the exhibit, three of the Hallmark plates are also reproduced in the article on Mike in the 2000 Daguerreian Society Annual. The article also features a number of Robinson's occupational images.
