About the author: Hailed by The New York Press as the Helmut Newton of the photography world’s new “Brat Pack,” world renowned photographer Paul Robinson continues to take art photography to new heights. Without formal training, Robinson began as a self-taught fashion photographer in Paris. After carving out a name for himself within the art community, Paul then parlayed his work shooting stills of Oprah for various commercials into doing unit photography on various feature films. Through his work in the film industry, Robinson became recognized as one of the most talented celebrity portrait photographers and was featured in some of the market’s top magazines including Details, Detour, Elle, Interview, Flaunt, George, Live, Out, House & Garden, and Architectural Digest. Working for some the biggest stars in Hollywood, Robinson has built an illustrious client roster that includes Renee Zellweger, Jennifer Tilly, David Arquette, Ella Fitzgerald, B.B. King, Melissa Ethridge, Noah Wyle, The Beastie Boys, and Dermot Mulroney, among others. Many of his celebrity clients are also fans, collecting various works from his exhibits. Paul Robinson’s work has often been described as aggressive, sexual and unapologetic for any moral transgressions that might be inferred. His first exhibit, “Voyeur,” became one of the hottest events in L.A. and New York as the guest lists became a virtual “who’s who” of the creative community. Combining a varied collection of black and white photos, the exhibit featured celebrity portraits of the young hot actors of today shot in a 1940s style, a jazz series of intimate moments with legendary musicians, and original, definitive images. Robinson followed this up with “Manfleur,” another huge success in which he used human subjects as props, intertwined with exotic flowers. E! Entertainment produced several segments, chronicling the eighteen months of shooting he did for the exhibit. Finding inspiration in his travels around the world, Paul Robinson exhibits regularly in London, Hong Kong, and Los Angeles. Robinson’s show “LOVEEVERLAST,” a black, white and colored interpretation of love, once again received national attention. Sponsored by Absolut Vodka, those in attendance included Renee Zellweger, Melissa Ethridge, Lawrence Bender, Bruce Cohen, and many other collectors of contemporary photography. Robinson’s next collection of photos, “Reflections,” became his most successful yet, capturing the moods of cities around the world including Paris, Rome, Florence, and Bangkok, to name a few. His latest series, “Transparent” represents the latest evolution in Robinson’s work in layering multiple images and is a seamless hybrid of photography and painting. Exploring various themes, each piece is printed on transparency, blending different cities and people from disparate locales such as Paris, Hong Kong, and L.A. Every beautiful and dreamlike piece he creates also happens to be 100% painstakingly handmade. Never ceasing to make art that is ground-breaking and thought-provoking, Paul Robinson continues to stand as a beacon of innovation and creativity for art enthusiasts across the nation.
