Robert Rice


Artist Statement

The images presented are part of Mr. Rice’s portfolio, “The Field”, published in 2013. It is a deeply personal work dedicated to his father, Donald Rice. The images were taken on the day Robert’s father died and they represent the brief moment we have in time.

The portfolio was produced in an edition of 20 sets and is printed on Awagami Unryu 55gm/m2 paper.
