Welcome to the new series “Ten Questions.” Creative professionals make much of the best work we see, but how does that work come to exist, and what makes these creative types tick? In this series, I will interview artists, writers, photographers, illustrators, designers, and anyone who lives life through a creative lens. My goal is to introduce them to my YouTube audience.
There is a major difference between online celebrity and real-world, industry relevance. Both are relevant in these most modern times, but knowing the difference is key to improving as a professional and key to adding to a visual conversation. Robert Stivers is a Santa Fe-based artist who works in both painting and photography. A master of the traditional, wet darkroom, Stivers creates one-of-a-kind silver-gelatin masterpieces. His work is in numerous collections and he has six monographs to his name. A full-time working professional for over thirty years, Stivers is a shining example of what can happen when you dedicate your life to your craft.
