This collection began as a 'mistake' while Robert was in a remote monastery in Japan when a long-exposure setting on the camera streaked a bare lightbulb hanging in his room. Inspired, when back home in his studio he suspended a 100-watt lightbulb against a black backdrop and created this series of 'portraits', where each image is a single-exposure photograph of the single, unmoving bulb.
