  • Travel Photographer Feature: Dr. M Robert Ito

    When asked what he loves most about photography Dr. M Robert Ito referred to a quote by the writer-photographer, Ralph Hattersley: 

    “We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.” 

    Robert enjoys photography as a means of seeing events, places and people in a way that has meaning to him, unfettered by demands of editors, art directors and others that may have a different agenda, and to be able share his interpretation of the world that he sees with others. He said, “friends say that I am happiest when I am out exploring and shooting images.” I think many of us can relate to that.
