“Robert Jaffe’s lens and eye are a gateway to a realm of transcendence. The scope of his work ranges from the close-up to expansive vistas. Whether his photographs are the astonishing insides of a raspberry or a full moon over Mount Shasta, you feel that perhaps you are experiencing these worldly wonders for the first time. Jaffe combines his consummate technical skill with the poetry of his vision. The camera captures reality, but Jaffe transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary. His work takes you to unforgettable moments and locations – a dove ascending from a monastery’s ledge in Assisi, Italy, or the Oregon Coast – filled with luminous rock and the calligraphic underbelly of driftwood. Jaffe’s photographs remind me of a line from Rumi: “We are tasting the taste, this minute of eternity.” The viewer with leave Jaffe’s exhibition, with that experience.”
