Description

Auteur

Among formative experiences of Robinson's childhood and adolescence were an extended family and community of freethinkers, anarchists, and socialists; an experimental school; and many moves during the Great Depression and World War II. As she was hearing and learning songs of protest against fascism abroad and segregation at home, she witnessed race and class discrimination inside and outside the "liberal" village of her teens. That crucible formed the frying pan from which she leaped into the fire in 1946.
Her adult life has been a juggling act of jobs, singing, activism, motherhood, poetry, photography, self-employment, and creative projects. Her daughter's illness and death at 45 is expressed in her poems and in this book.
The determination to make personal choices in the face of relentless economic necessity is a central theme in Robinson's story. It is familiar to those who juggle jobs, single parenting, activism, and creativity in their pursuit of meaning and fulfillment in a society focused on college, career, and above all, upward mobility-"the race to the top."



Texte du rabat

The photographer writes: I kept these photographs in albums for many years and as I approached age 91, I gave them to Mark Weiman of Regent Press to make them into a book. This book would be different from the books of mine that Mark had printed and published previously. These were my autobiography, Out of the Frying Pan, Into the Fire (2010), and Urban Impressions (2013) black-and-white photographs of New York City.
The photographs in this book: California Impressions, were made during trips in the Bay Area as I used my camera to focus on local subjects and scenes.
