Robert Croma's photostream Pro User
"Naive or commercial or merely utilitarian photography is no different in kind from photography as practiced by the most gifted professionals: there are pictures taken by anonymous amateurs which are just as interesting, as complex formally, as representative of photography's characteristic powers as a Stieglitz or a Walker Evans."
Susan Sontag – ON PHOTOGRAPHY 1977
" I still regard myself as an amateur: but a dilettante I certainly am not."

"I would like to 2nd my testimonal to what Edwardolive already mentioned below. I just want to express my deepest respect to this incredible Photographer for all his works he have achieved in his past, and then also want to speak out loud that I am so honored to have him crossing over my photostream and leave so much comments for me!!
Whenever I come across his photostream, I always feel like I'm still playing in a sandpit, while this gentleman is reaching the moon."

"I love all his work. Especially his documentary photos that brings you close to the subjects, so they become more than subjects, they become humans . He has a fantastic eye for photo subjects that others would ignore. He inspires me me to carry on and get better. I deeply respect him."

Séverine C. aka sey 9 says:
"I have no words to speak about the pictures of cromacom, because they make me speechless. Cromacom is without any doubt one of the best photographers in flickr, he makes the things I like so much in photography, these amazing possibilities to capture something stronger than real in reality, to capture story in eyes, to show world as it is, beautiful and imperfect, full of mess, full of live...
This is one of the most beautiful present I had on flickr. I am simply incredibly mooved by his strong pictures, behond my words.
Thank you !!!"
