Familiar Touch - Moments in Time
(The Journey)
by Robert Wright View author's profile page

Overview


"Familiar Touch – Moments in Time" is a photographic journey through the Caribbean. Reverend Robert M. Wright's photographs represent a slice of life captured in the 1990's. With black and white photography we see into the vast lives and scenes in the British Virgin Islands and the Leeward Islands. Hurricanes have caused chaos in the region, but the worst of nature can never destroy the best of man.

Some one once said that self praise is no recommendation so as a way of describing the book I submitted to you the first review of the work.

Familiar Touch—Moments in Time (The Journey) by Robert M.

Wright is a collection of black-and-white photos. Wright took all the

photos in the Caribbean, and he calls them “cultural slices of life.”

Photos are from the British Virgin Islands, Mexico, Cuba, Antigua,

the U.S. Virgin Islands, Honduras, and Puerto Rico. Subjects include

children, landscapes, buildings, churches, and people at work or

play. Most of the photos are accompanied by either the author’s

thoughts or quotations from well-known or anonymous writers. For

example, Wright quotes Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on

the moon, along with a photo from the Top of the Baths in the

British Virgin Islands. “Geologists have a saying—rocks remember.”


Wright also quotes the Bible. His book is not religious in tone, yet

it’s clear that religion plays a role in the photographer/author’s life.

Readers will enjoy Robert M. Wright’s Familiar Touch—Moments in

Time whether or not they have been to the Caribbean.


All the photos are beautiful, professionally shot, and tastefully done.

Wright notes that hurricanes Irma and Maria caused much damage

in the Caribbean, but also points out that “the worst of nature can

never destroy the best of man.”


His intent is to showcase the beauty of the Caribbean and the indomitable nature of its people.

I’ve never been to most of the places Wright photographed, so it

was a pleasure to view his photos. They made me want to visit the

locations. Wright is a talented photographer, and anyone will enjoy

his work.
