bio_bob_portraitFor over 40 years, Robert Grier's color and black and white photography has appeared in the award-winning NEBRASKAland Magazine, published by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. Additionally, Robert's work is in the permanent collections of several prestigious mid-western art galleries, most notably the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery on the campus of the University of Nebraska Lincoln and the University of Kansas Art Museum in Lawrence, Kansas where he was honored with solo exhibitions of his black and white photography. His introduction leading to his first gallery show was facilitated by the photographer Ansel Adams following Robert's participation at the Adam's Winter Photography Workshop in Yosemite, California.Working in the traditional darkroom producing archival black and white, silver-based prints for over thirty years, Robert joined the “digital revolution” in 2003 and began producing archival-quality inkjet prints, primarily in color and more recently in black and white.

“The printing techniques used in the traditional darkroom forms a bedrock for precision digital imaging and printing,” he says. “The same techniques, straight-forward dodging, burning and the selection of paper surfaces, chemistry (inks) and the other printing processes can be done with even more precision to produce expressive, fine prints and the best inks and papers offer exceptional archival quality as well.”
