With a career that spans five decades, Australian photographer Robert Imhoff has many stories that point to his ingenuity in knowing when to make the most of a situation. Even as a child he was always looking for an opportunity. At the Melbourne Olympic Games village in 1956 a 7-year-old Rob slid between the legs of the adults and under a barricade to take a snapshot of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, with his Kodak Brownie E-box camera. This photograph features alongside numerous images taken over his career in the retrospective exhibition and book, Imhoff: A Life of Grain and Pixels.
