Photographer Robert Cave's Legacy

A host of family and friends gathered to celebrate the life of Robert Daniel Cave, Sr., September 14 at Evening Star Baptist Church.  Mr. Cave, a noted photographer in the community, passed away on Tuesday evening, September 8.  His legacy lives in the thousands of photographs he shot of  Brooklynites, known and unknown.  It also lives in  the brilliant creative work of his daughter,  Eurila Cave, 19, and his son, Robert D. Cave, Jr., 18.  Eurila,  an award-winning photographer, is equally adept at developing black & white and color photographs.  (She shot the pictures seen on the cover and page 11).  Robert, Jr.  is a gifted illustrator and artist.   Cave, Sr. gave his daughter a camera for her 17th birthday… after her math grades picked up.  He gave  Robert Jr. a computer on his 17th birthday to expand  his graphics skills.   The work of the Cave siblings will be presented in upcoming issues of Our Time Press.   Miss Cave’s dream is to major in Photography at NYU on full scholarship.  BG
