Robert Brown

Robert Brown was born in Portland, Oregon and has Master of Fine Arts from the University of Montana and a Ph.D. in English from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He has a passion for both photography and literature, and has published short stories, children's books, scholarly articles, and over 100 poems in literary and academic journals. His book of poems, Sleepwalking with Mayakovsky, was published by Kent State University Press.
 
A little over four years ago, Bob discovered photography and has been able to think of little since. He's developed an interest in the "poetic image" and tries to incorporate the subtlety and symbolism of poetry into his photography. His favorite subjects include landscapes, flowers, abstracts, photo impressionism, travel, and Americana. He's had shows in several Northwest galleries and has had photographs used for book and CD covers, as well as for some advertising.
 
Bob lives in Astoria, Oregon at the end of the Lewis and Clark trail. He's married and is the proud father of 11-year-old twins.
