Bob recently discussed his creative endeavors and his interest in #Horses.

Horses

Blasting News (BN): How did you get interested in #Photography initially?

Bob Tabor (BT): My interest in photography began at the age of eight in 1954. I brought my exposed roll of film from my Kodak box camera to the corner drug store to be developed. The rest is history.

BN: Why do you focus so much on horses?

BT: I love capturing the inner personality, the soul of these statuesque animals. They appear to be so big and strong; however, after I spend some time with them I see an inner beauty that finds a place in my heart.

BN: Out of your entire portfolio, do you have a favorite photo?

BT: I love all my children the same.

BN: How did you go about getting your work seen publicly?

BT: I was fortunate to have taken a photograph of a horse at a stable in the Hampton's on one of my "exploration days".

That horse unbeknownst to me was owned by a Creative Designer at Ralph Lauren Home. With his help, I was able to start my new career.

BN: How did you get involved with the Emmanuel Fremin Gallery?

BT: I observed Emmanuel at a number of art fairs. His passion and respect for the artwork he was showing was amazing to witness. After introducing myself to Emmanuel I was immediately taken by his kindness and sincerity. He's a very special person.

BN: In addition to photography, you are a published author. Can you describe your books and their themes?

BT: Over the past six years I've had four large format photo books published of my work. Two consist of personality revealing portraits of horses; "Horse Whisperings" and “HORSE/HUMAN”. Another book titled "POLO: Equine Warriors" focuses on the horse in battle during this fast paced-game. The forth book titled "DREAMSCAPES" shows images of sky and sea which is a subject that is very thoughtful and inspiring for me.

BN: So far, what has been the most rewarding experience related to your creative work?

BT: The rewarding part for me is to see the eyes of the people buying my work.

I feel the story I captured is continuing to evolve with its new owners.

BN: What advice would you give to someone who is striving to become a professional photographer?

BT: SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT. Learn from the photos you take.

BN: Are there any upcoming projects and/or events that you want to discuss?

BT: Yes, thank you for asking. I will have my first solo show at the Emmanuel Fremin Gallery. Opening night will be January 26th, 2017 and will run through February 26th. I will take part in the Affordable Art Fair NYC in March. Also in March I will participate in the Architectural Design Show in NYC. This summer I will have work on display at ART HAMPTON, in Bridgehampton NY. #Interview
