Robert is a photographer.

The pictures from his senior thesis exhibition were a tribute to the memory of Hannah McKay, a young woman who passed away on January 17, 2010 of heart failure.

Robert writes, "When a person dies we are left to go on without them. All that we have to remember them by is the physical things they left behind, and the memories we shared. It is through these as well that we can continue to keep that person alive.

She had battled with an eating disorder for years and beat it, however the damage it did to her body she was unable to recover from.  Her death came so unexpectedly and too early, she was 19 years old.  Even though she is gone, she continues to live today through the things she left behind and the memories that remain with those who knew her.

Her passing has left a mark on my heart that I will never forget, and I am not alone on this. Some people chose to permanently mark her memory in the form of tattoo. Each person's tattoo varies in content, as well as the location on their body. Some reference a memory, while others are a symbol of that mark she left of them.

The hope of this series is to keep her, and her memory alive.
