The Photographer Next Door: Taking Pictures in a Community.
Robin and his wife have lived in Penzance since 2000, but have been frequent visitors to Cornwall and, especially, Scilly, since the 1980s. He used to teach modern history at Warwick University, specialising in German and European cultural history, but moving towards photographic history c. 2000. The Oxford Companion to the Photograph, of which he was general editor, came out in 2005. He is a member of the Penwith Photographic Group, and his photographs are mostly of people, places he visits on holiday, and of boats and activities in Penzance and Newlyn.
