Bob Herbst

Bob Herbst is an award-winning photographer, printmaker, and teacher who has been photographing and printing in platinum/palladium and silver gelatin since 1970. He has achieved international recognition as a master printer. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Progressive Insurance Corporation, Washington National Cathedral, and the Orkney Museum in Kirkwall, Scotland. In the 2000s, Bob taught the platinum/palladium printing process at colleges and universities in the northeastern Ohio area as a visiting artist - at the Cleveland Institute of Art, the University of Akron, Hiram College, Cuyahoga Community College and in private workshops at his studio in Aurora. His modern architecture portfolio of platinum prints was included in the Midwest Photographers\' Project at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago from 2003-2005. Bob pioneered the use of a UV densitometer to calibrate ink jet printers for making digital negatives for alternative photographic processes such as platinum/palladium, Van Dyke brown, and cyanotype printing. This work was published and later presented at the Alternative Photography International Symposium (APIS) in Santa Fe in 2001 and 2005. His extensive knowledge and expertise resulted in an invitation to write an appendix for the comprehensive book on the platinum/palladium printing process, Platinum and Palladium Printing, by Dick Arentz, 2005. Bob is a former president and board member of the Friends of Photography at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
