About the Book
Photographer Robert Holmgren, using a simple toy camera, directs attention to the various ways human and animal forms are represented; Whether by means of advertising, appeals to conscience, in scientific exhibits or in memorializing a life--we could be forgiven if it seems that strange dreams are being played out in broad daylight.
Robert Holmgren lives in Menlo Park, California. Several of his photographs are included in the collections of New York's Museum of Modern Art, the Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, as well as the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography. Among his awards is the National Endowment of the Arts Artist Fellowship. During his career shooting editorial assisgnments for a variety of national and regional magazines he shot many of the key movers of Silicon Valley, noted academics, artists, politicians, athletes, as well as lots of wonderful innovators across a variety of fields--including 6 Nobel Prize winners.
