Robert was formerly a teacher of Design & Technology and continues to live in the Cotswolds, in the market town of Moreton in Marsh.
Progressively, Robert is becoming a more active member of the Royal Photographic Society, principally in the East Midlands Region. He was awarded a RPS distinction in 2014.

Robert's photographic voice and aspiration continue to develop.

Last November he went on a solitary journey to Oradour sur Glane. To take photographs and to seek reconciliation in the silence, through the lens of his camera.

It was not so much the images he made there but the story they continue to tell.

During the afternoon of 10 June 1944, 643 men, women and children were assembled and brutally killed. Overnight the village was laid to waste.

One of Robert's photographs, he says changed everything for him . ' A river of tears, in a place that for just one day seemingly became devoid of all humanity.' It will never to be forgotten.

And this is why I sojourn (t)here,
Alone and palely loitering,
The sedge is withered from the lake,
And no birds sing.
