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 gallerist: “His range is incredible. From cityscape to landscape, architecture to people, he finds and abstracts the human values.” He is currently at work on a project centering on a single building in Chicago, the historic Monadnock, and the people who utilize it.
A frequent lecturer at workshops, Mr. George holds a master’s degree from Washington University.
