The late photographer Jack Robinson was a photographer for the New York Times and Vogue. Throughout his career, he took thousands of photos of famous personalities. Several of his never-before-seen photos are now up for sale.
Jack Robinson was a photographer who started his career in photography documenting the nightlife in New Orleans. In 1955 when he was 27 years old, he moved to New York City to get a career in fashion photography. He worked in publications, such as The New York Times Magazine, and Vogue. By the 1970’s, his name was synonymous with fashion photography and he was known for his masterful creations, which were said to be among the best at that time.
Robinson passed away in 1997 and his estate was left to his boss, Dan Oppenheimer. Upon inspecting one of the photographer’s closets, he stumbled upon an assortment of photographs unseen by the public. The collection has over 150,000 prints of musicians, models, places, and famous personalities. Now you can get your hands on a copy of these prints from his archive.
