Timothy Soar the architecural photographer had this to say about Robert..

"Robert Norbury has an extraordinary eye. His gift, as properly it should be considered a gift, is his capacity to release the shutter when heart and subconscious mind are in perfect union. What Norbury sees, that which Norbury responds to, the world that informs Norbury, most of us can only wonder at. 

The internal narrative that is illustrated in this story book of photographs is as complex and surprising as a fable by the Brothers Grimm. The machine in Norbury's hand is more than a camera, it is a magical box that sequesters the essence of a sinister tale, an other world, a parallel existence. Here apprehensive figures dart across landscapes, glimmer from window frames and iridescently illuminate dark shadowy places, or wait to captivate the viewer with a baleful gaze. Norbury better than understands this surreal and absurd world, he inhabits it completely with the assuredness of a storyteller".
