.. Robert 090/100 ..

Robert is Vicar at Holy Trinity Church in South Woodford, London and was attending an event in Heythrop College, as I was. While refreshments were being served, I had the opportunity to chat with him. Robert is one of the lectures at Heythrop though he told me that his course is currently "on the shelf". His special field is the Danish philosopher / theologian Søren Kierkegaard. Robert – as only a true scholar can – explained to me in a sort "user-friendly" synthesis the main gist of Kierkegaard's theology/philosophy. We had a really interesting conversation then about the process of thinking and the immediacy of feeling in relationship with truth. Something about the way we know directl, at times, intuitively with feelings that can be quite spot on... I shared with Robert some of what I have learned/experience in my 100 Strangers project over the past few months and how it has enriched not just my photographic practice but my understanding and delight in the variety of people I have encountered...

 

Robert did not have a lot of time and the lighting in the main hall was quite low, so we moved location which was much better... Thank you, Robert! It was really nice to meet you and delightful to chat!
