About Robin Cracknell
These photographs incorporate a unique non-digital process which combines traditional film photography with cinematography, the intention being to give these 'still' pictures a vaguely narrative quality that I hope speaks about love, loss and memory. In Portuguese, the word is saudade-- a love steeped in sadness, to feel what no longer exists. By definition, that is what photography does--to stop time, fend off oblivion, allow us to feel what no longer exists-- to remind us of what we have lost. Robin Cracknell's work has been exhibited and published internationally and is in many private and public collections including The National Portrait Gallery in London and Fundacion Sorigue in Spain.
