Ken Robinson is a former professor of biology from Purdue University who moved to Eugene upon retirement. In his research as a cell and developmental biologist, a major tool was photography, generally through the lens of microscope, so that the responses of cells to various perturbations could be recorded and analyzed.
It was natural, then, that in retirement he extended his experience in photography to the macroscopic world. He quickly formed a love for eastern Oregon and its high desert country. Much of his work consists of landscapes from there, as well as from southern Utah, Colorado and New Mexico.
In addition to landscapes, he also photographs wildlife, including birds, bees, spiders, turtles and dragonflies. He tries to show these creatures in interesting scenes in their natural context.
He also has an interest in astronomy and uses ordinary camera lenses to photograph the night sky. Included in these are photographs of eclipses, both lunar and solar, the Milky Way, meteors and the transits of Venus and Mercury across the sun.
