Robert Calafiore employs his hand-built pinhole camera to create vivid large-scale one-of-a-kind chromogenic prints of abstracted still life tableaus and languid male nude studies. His interest in the process, traditional materials, and the reaction between light and chemistry, as well as the personal and universal stories told through everyday objects, drives the work in his studio practice. Elevating the ordinary to the extraordinary, the every day to a magical place, continues to be one of his primary motivators. Robert received his MFA in Photography from the State University of New York at Buffalo and his BFA in Photography from Hartford Art School. Currently, he lives and works in West Hartford, CT where he is the Assistant Dean of the Hartford Art School. GALLERY 1/1 is pleased to have presented Robert's West Coast exhibition debut.
