Robert Cattan pairs seemingly everyday occurrences from the world around us that contain a common thread, and elevates them to a higher level with his composition and artistic techniques.


About the Author

Robert Cattan
colorsavy White Plains New York,10606

I was born and raised in Montevideo, Uruguay and immigrated to New York as a teenager. My interest in photography was sparked by a high school art course. Photography gave me a means to communicate in a country where the language and culture was foreign. I later attended The School of Visual Arts and have been involved in making images commercially for the last 30 years.

“I am not interested in just recording what we see, but more an idealized interpretation of the subject matter,”“By using digital imaging, a dry flower becomes alive with a new infusion of elements such as textures, hand painted backdrops, and added elements.” Cattan said the best way to describe what he does is “painting with light; not much different than the traditional dogging and burning (lightening and darkening enlarged prints), but with greater accuracy. My photography involves finding the mundane and creating beauty and peacefulness and emotion.”

Great idea and execution. Each individual image is artistically rendered and they present even better 'paired'. The pairing caused me to linger longer to make the connection between them.
I chuckled at the humor displayed in the pairing of the pigeon and the shape of the hand holding the drink in sihouette by the window. The genuine spontaneity of my reaction is my clearest compliment.
I also appreciate the freedom you've shown to break the conventional 'rules' of photography.
