About this Event
His father was Robert Bloomfield, as was his grandfather. His son and grandson are also Robert Bloomfields. On his father’s side he is related to the English pastoral poet Robert Bloomfield and on his mother’s side he is a descendant of another Robert: a first-fleeter named Robert Forrester.
The present Robert spent the first 46 years of his life in London, where he was involved in the art and craft of photo-image manipulation. At the onset of the digital revolution Robert stuck a metaphorical pin in an equally metaphorical map of the English-speaking world and considers himself lucky that it pointed him toward a new life in Adelaide.
Robert’s PhD examined the psycho-social aspects of collecting behaviour, and since its completion he has worked in a number of lecturing roles at the University of South Australia’s Magill campus.
