Robert Gumpert

We had a visiting speaker,Pete Brook come in to talk about Robert Gumpert’s work. I really enjoyed looking at his work, the prison photographs really hold emotion in the still images. They seem to capture the people looking vulnerable even though they are in prison and must be tough.

This is one of my favorite out of Gumpert’s images. I really like the detail the photograph has captured in the man tattoos, especially on his face. They hint at stories of how he got them, but we may never know. This gives the photograph mystery and makes it even more compelling. I think I like this image more for the guys tattoos on his face and how the photograph really makes them stand out with its use of black and white.
