about Randall Hobbet

Male

At the end of 2013 I retired from an international career as a geologist and am now devoting more or less full-time to my photography passion. I’ve long been in thrall to the beautiful in all its forms and thus as a photographer pursue many different subjects from wildlife to landscapes to architecture to longtime exposures to abstract. But a primary fascination for me is that highly evolved form of beauty: Woman. It is the fleeting aspect of beauty that I particularly find an interesting challenge, to capture beauty and yet attest to its fugitive quality.

Those moments can be in the millisecond moment of a dancer, an emotion passing across the face; or the life force of animate nature, be it animal or plant, the patience of a heron, the predatory gaze of a cat or owl, the flower of womanhood… The fleeting moment can also entail changing light in a landscape, or as in long exposure photography, it can approach from the other side to express persistence in time, the energy flux of passing clouds, the flow of a stream, the endless churn of the oceans, the star tracks of the heavens… and yet it is still a moment in deep time, nothing is eternal…

  • Hello Randall, " and yet it is still a moment in deep time, nothing is eternal… " Well said. One of my perceptions of your images is the comfort of the pose as there is a restraint from forcing the direction of the pose ... it is relaxed and the observer see's the comfort of the temporary beauty of time in the one moment.
