As Grace Robertson shared her earliest work and insight with us, she unlocked a portal into the past. As an aspiring photojournalist in the late 1940’s, Grace worked diligently to succeed against all social odds. She enlightened us that it all, “starts with your handshake”. It better be a worthy, strong one in order to get the respect and recognition you deserve. Yet the relationship with our photography must be delicate. Time and time again she would ask herself, “have I got this as honestly done as I can?” This inquiry polished her a much more precise eye, which awarded work publishing in the Picture Post and Life Magazine. She encouraged us to always be curious. Curiosity will grant us the ultimate fulfillment in our lives and our photography.
