At The Corner Cup Coffee one of our greatest joys is being able to support the people who support us. One of our biggest proponents from the very beginning is Robert Lutgendorf (we call him Bob). If you every want to know more about Bob's work you can find him most mornings sitting at table under his photographs. If he is here feel free to say hello, he is always game to talk about his work or photography in general.
More about Bob:
Robert started his journey in photography with a Petri Range Finder camera while in Amsterdam during the summer of 69. His passion for photography grew as he traveled to wild and remote places during a stint in the United States Coast Guard.
The beautiful places he visited while traveling the globe helped to cement his love for landscape and abstract composition with a smaller focus on street photography. Robert’s work contains both intimate and broad-scope photographs that all tell an extraordinary story about an ordinary subject or scene.
Robert plans some of his photographs in advance so he can frame them to tell the story he wants to portray with the image. However, he does admit that many of his photos are taken on-the-fly based on his unconscious attraction to a scene or situation.
The simple Petri Range Finder camera is long gone and Robert now uses a modern Sony A series camera to capture his stunning photographs and Adobe Lightroom to enhance their beauty even further.
Robert hopes that his photographs of ordinary objects and scenes will evoke an emotional response in you, the viewer.
