Robert Kaussner

Hi Nick!

I really enjoyed listening to and seeing your presentation at Cornell on Sunday afternoon (I'm the guy who was up in the balcony who during the Q&A phase of your presentation mentioned that I was very inspired by some of your father's books and his passion for teaching/motivating the masses to think more critically, etc.).

On a different note, one snowy January day around twenty years ago a friend of mine (a fellow Kodak photographic seminar presenter) and I bumped into your father who somehow mistook me for one of his grad students. He smiled at me, and said hello. Then recognized that he made a mistake as he got closer and apologized.

I told him no apology was necessary and that I certainly knew who he was.

It was one of those great moments in my life.

Also, I am an Ithaca-based, full-time professional photographer who would be more than happy to be of assistance to you (at no charge) if you even need anything created for you photographically, etc. I do have a lot of experience doing portraiture, editorial, conceptual advertising work, etc.

Once again, it was a true honor and pleasure to see you at the presentation.

Best Regards,
Robert Kaussner
