  Contributor Biography:  Dan Oppenheimer 
 
Dan Oppenheimer, a Memphis businessman, employed Jack Robinson at his Rainbow Stained Glass Studio. The inventor of a photographic sand blast etching process, Oppenheimer shared an interest with Robinson in alternative darkroom processes. Upon Robinson's death in 1997, he inherited more than 140,000 of the photographer's images. In 2002, he established the Jack Robinson Gallery and Archive to promote the artist's legacy. Oppenheimer has been active in the revitalization of downtown Memphis and led a drive to return historic streetcars to the city. He is married and has 2 children and a Manx cat.
