'I found the entire experience magical from beginning to end. Robert told me he was an airbrush artist and asked if he could take one of my images and work on it... about a month later he showed me these two absolutely gorgeous pieces of artwork. Also, he said he really wanted to be a photographer and asked if I would mind him watching me shooting. He came a couple of times after that and would hang out in the background as I was working.' Norman Seeff

'I promised him that throughout my life I would magnify his work and his name as best I could... then I asked him if there was anything specific he wanted me to do. These were his last hours on earth and he asked me if I would write our story. But I knew exactly what our story was because when we were quite young and we rarely had any money to go to concerts or to go out, we mostly stayed home after doing our jobs. Sometimes when it was really cold or we were bored, he would ask me to tell him our story if he couldn’t sleep. So I knew exactly what he meant.' Patti Smith (She chooses March 8, 1989 as the day losing her then lover as that was the last time she spoke with him).

Norman Seeff a body of content explores the roots of creativity, innovation and optimal performance and has identified schematics describing the archetypes of the creative process that function across all creative disciplines. The fundamental tenet of his work is that all creation is sourced in the inner resources of consciousness and that everyone has access to the same innate resources.
