About this Image:
The Water Street Portfolio consists of ten black and white etchings on copper plates. Composed with simple, elegant line work, each plate depicts a chapter in Robinson’s Water Street saga. Over a fifty year period, Robinson gathered a collection of stories told to her by her Uncle Alvin; from these stories, as well her own travels and experiences, the Water Street Portfolio was born. The prints make up a “creation story” that revolves around Robinson’s believe that life grew out of the earth and evolved to the present moment. They are deeply personal as well as historical.
