    Giving My Gift Away

    The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The work of life is to develop it. The meaning of life is to give your gift away.
    This quote, which is sometimes misattributed to Picasso, is actually an idea put forth by a psychiatrist, the late David Viscott. It sums up perfectly the intention of my latest photo project:
    Starting on Wednesday, January 6th 2016 I will be posting one portrait each day on my Facebook page, Robert Kalman, Photographer. If you are the first person, anywhere in the world, to offer a comment about the portrait, I will send it to you in the mail, for free. That is, Im giving my gift away.

    Ive made the short, three-minute video below describing what all this is about. Please check it out.
    Thanks!
