Robert Welsh


"child on ferry "
This child who seems deep in thought with the Statue of Liberty in the background is from an on-going series of the Staten Island Ferry. I tried to capture the light and the manner in which it reflects the varying moods of its passengers.

Biography: Robert Welsh (b. 1953) captures the spirit of various communities and settings to convey a sense of universalism.
