For lovers of landscapes, Bill Robinson provides a world of art, color, and sweeping spaces that open up a room and transport the viewer to a new place. Bill Robinson, a native of South Australia, takes photographs in many regions of his native country as well as New Zealand–long sweeping views. An avid hiker, Bill began photographing what he saw on his hikes, first with standard cameras, then will digital cameras. He started winning awards for his photographic landscapes 10 years ago. Bill Robinson’s photos provide a refreshing look at a location of the world many people never see: the Australian countryside.

Juxtapositions at Their Best

Bill Robinson’s photographs can be grouped in several different ways. The artists has his photos grouped by location. For example, the Broken Hill Silverton and Menindie Lakes collection offers a variety of views including desert landscapes with the juxtaposition of desert with abandoned buildings and pieces of farm equipment. Robinson also uses light to illuminate objects he finds interesting in his work, such as a single small house in Robinson’s piece Silverton Cottage. Robinson’s photos of the ocean in New Zealand and Australia contrast with his desert views. Robison again uses light in these photographs, but the light is early morning sunlight rising over the ocean. Some of the photos also feature the purpling of the sky during a sunset. It would make an interesting grouping to have some of Robinson’s desert photos paired with the ocean photos for a grouping, or Robinson’s sunrise and sunset photos.

Shots Around New Zealand and Australia

Robinson also photographs a variety of species native to Australia or New Zealand. He has a particular talent for photographing birds in flight, such as his piece “The Last One in the Air”, which features a flock of rose-breasted cockatoos (Galahs)  taking off from their resting place. Another photo contains a crocodile snapping at a missed opportunity. The artist has an arresting photo of a butterfly on lavender, and a New Holland Honeyeater on a piece of cactus. If you are a nature lover, you have to appreciate Robinson’s rendering of animals within sparse settings to further demonstrate the animal’s magnificence.

Black and Whites

In addition to all of his color photography of landscapes, seascapes and animals. Robinson also photographs in black and white, which demonstrates his ability to capture dark and light images perfectly. An example of his black and white dramatic photography can be seen in his fascinating photo of a hay rake, that perfectly captures the circular motifs of the piece of farm equipment against a black background. His monochrome collection also includes other pictures of farm equipment, seascapes, and trees along a river. As primitive or industrial designs often call for dramatic stylized art, these monochromatic photographic pieces would add beautiful stark features to any room.

If you love photography, Bill Robinson’s landscape, seascape, and animal photography should be examined for his attention to detail and his eye for balance and perfection. You are sure to find a piece in his collection that would fit into your home beautifully.
