About Rob Fillion
“One should not only photograph things for what they are but for what else they are.” – Minor White
"Anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph; not searching for unusual subject matter, but making the commonplace unusual."– Edward Weston
I studied photography in the early 1970s and worked as a photographer for the National Museums of Canada and as Chief Photographer at the National Gallery. My photography is influenced by the work of composers and writers as much as by painters and photographers. I photograph things not only for what they are but for my response to them. Equally at home in the wilderness of Canada’s far north as in the streets of Venice, my art describes the world to others more as interpretive dance than as documentary.
