Michael Robb – Artist

I was invited to photograph the artist Michael Robb during the last year of his life. Michael was an important figure in the visual arts community of Salt Spring Island - inspiring and encouraging dozens of artists during his three decades working here. We were working towards a gallery show together to present his latest pieces of sculpture and painting together with my photographs of him working and of his studio. Unfortunately he died a week before the opening. On opening night, the gallery was packed with hundreds of people who knew and loved him and his work - all determined to celebrate his life.
