Robert George’s compelling portraits have been heralded as “brilliant, luminous and simply stunning.” He employs the techniques of street photography, photojournalism, studio portraiture and elements borrowed from the paparazzi. His photographs form a tableaux of the American social landscape, encompassing technology, race, celebrity, exclusion and excess.
In the words of one reviewer: “His range is incredible. From cityscape to landscape, architecture to people, he finds and abstracts the human values.” His work includes a multi-year study of the Monadnock building in Chicago, as well as Glengarry Road, a series of travel and landscape photographs. Anonymous and Middle Earth, his most recent projects, look at lostness in modern life and consider how technology, pop culture, media and inequality are shaping our search for identity.
