Robert Goida


Robert Goida is a Long Islander, born and raised, and to this day he continues to search out the beauty and diversity of his surroundings. “I try to find pieces of our world that go unnoticed by those of us who always seem to be in a hurry to get somewhere. I want them to see and appreciate what it is we have here and to learn to enjoy those moments of time.” In this photo collection Robert takes us on a tour of Long Island, from a view of The Bronx as seen from Port Washington to waves crashing at Gilgo, a sailboat on Huntington Harbor and water lilies at Cedarmere. In a more close up perspective of our environment we spy on a spider in its web and a bee enjoying one of the first flowers of spring and a few seagulls passing the time. Events that occur regularly are frozen in time by the camera lens. This is the beauty of Robert’s photography and by making use of modern computer technology he is able to twist some of these images to achieve stunning visual effects such as we experience in “Mirror Image” and “Dolphin Green”, two shots which take on a different feeling when seen in this way. Robert has continued to strive to achieve an artistic identity and through photography, has found his voice. His images are evocative and reflect a different view of the world around us. From the smallest spider to the vastness of oceans, Robert brings these images to life and into our lives.
