About Us

Camera Records in Time was formed and founded by Traverse Day Robinette and fellow photographer Sam Quinn in the summer of 2009 out of a desire to create an environment where photographers can habitually come together to support one another artistically and receive feedback about their work.

Brian Fitzgibbons: Water and Sky

Brian Fitzgibbons has historically used photography to capture his point of view surrounding identity, masculinity, sexuality, and the intimate relationship they form with regard to gay men. After taking a hiatus from fine art photography, Brian begins a discovery of a very different nature. Having dealt with the loss of several loved ones over the course of a short time, his thoughts have turned more inward to his relationship to mortality and spirituality. In these beginning images, the relationship between water and sky serve as a focal point for this exploration.

Throughout mythology and theology, mankind has returned time and again to these symbols to represent the spiritual planes, from the Grecian ideas of the river Styx and Hades, to the Judeo-Christian imagery of heaven in the clouds. While at most times very visually separated by horizon, these planes become blurred and enmeshed as atmosphere, fog, and light find their way in-between. This blurring of the lines currently serves as the primary visual language that Brian is working within to represent his current thoughts on his relationship to mortality. Still very much weighted by these losses, Brian finds himself in that proverbial fog, caught between the water and sky. The final trajectory of this work is still to be discovered and, as with loss itself, can only be made clear as time allows this fog to pass.
