Robert Butcher : NYC

Here’s  photo of Robert Butcher. He’s a New York / Sydney Fashion Photographer, ex-publisher of Tattoos Magazine, creator and manager of various Rock’n’Roll bands and accomplished raconteur. He’s a friend of a friend of mine from New York who died a few years back and it’s great to catch up when I’m here. Robert has just emerged from a 10 year agoraphobic stint which kept him more-or-less contained in his brooklyn studio.

This protracted episode was initiated by a combination of getting stuck in traffic out of Brooklyn to New York, which delayed his arrival to a meeting in the World Trade Center and then seeing them hit by 2 planes while stuck on the bridge.  Or maybe the home invasion from which he escaped with his life thanks to a mis-firing gun.

At any rate, he’s just recently embraced the outside world and is ‘seeing the world anew through other people’s eyes’. Welcome back.

    Have been searching for Robert on-and-off for almost 30 years. Our paths crossed briefly for a month or so in 1987. What a wonderful person. Thought he had returned to the UK, so concentrated search there. If you are still in touch with Robert, please pass along my e-mail, not sure is he will remember me, but we had a lot of fun with our bats, playing table tennis at an exclusive club on the upper east side. Hope you are well Robert my friend. Jim
