"A shadow passing leaves no trace but for a moment captured. That moment -- the split second when light and shadow, line and form, color and texture come together; the instant when a glance or facial expression turns from posed to revealing; when the inexplicably beautiful moments of life unfold  -- capturing them are what drives me as a photographer".

Virginia photographer, Robert Rathe produces award-winning photography for advertising, annual reports and corporate collateral. He began his career in 1975 after receiving a B.A in Fine Arts from the George Washington University.
