Lee Smoot Jr: THE COWBOY SERIES
"His use of light, subject, and scene resemble the work of early German portrait photographer August Sander. His use of high contrast imagery, subtle detail, and wide tonal range resemble the work of a modern day Ansel Adams. Robert Osborn is a multifaceted and highly disciplined artist." Ethan Confer, Ethan Confer Photography (www.ethanconfer.com)
"His pictures have soul." Peter Elliott, photographer; WINTER, HOME FRONT, PARKLIFE
"Powerful composition...masterful execution. In his images we find the spirit of the cowboy." Amy Pallas, COWBOYS & INDIANS Magazine
"Interviewing Osborn about the influence of his magazine, BMX ACTION, on the early sport of BMX and its bikers would be akin to interviewing Jann Wenner, the founder of ROLLING STONE magazine, about Rock N' Roll in the 70s." Emon Hassan, Director of Video and Multimedia, www.narratively.ly (One of TIME's "Best Websites of 2013")
"Osborn demonstrates an incomparable capacity for capturing a story with a single image." Beth Gregory, Livingston Art Center, Livingston, Montana
"The work you sent was astounding. GORGEOUS. Christ, it's beautiful. The website just doesn't do it justice." Kevin Marshall, Group Creative Director, Marc Rosen Associates, New York, New York
"Robert Osborn's style and diversity are, simply put, incredible. His print quality is some of the best you will ever see...in the same league as Ansel Adams and John Sexton." Russ Levin, Levin Gallery of Fine Art Photography, Monterey, California
"Rustic and symmetrical, simple yet divinely elegant. Robert Osborn's black and white photography gets to the heart of human expression, wisdom, and experience." Neil Heckman, Monterey County Weekly, Seaside, California
