Street photography is every bit a study as it is a form of expression. Robert Saint Rich aims to explore that with his collection of street photographs shot in New York City.
From the Rainbow Room is a study on the process of dealing with emotions in our day-to-day lives. The way we dress, how we decorate, how we react, and so on reflect all these emotions we're feeling. Inspired by the color palettes that people are attracted to when feeling the full spectrum of emotions, this new photobook puts a mirror in front of us and gets our biases out of the way. It's a commentary without judgment, no matter what color you're feeling like wearing.
The imagery in this project reflects this – consisting of ambiguous, monochromatic aesthetics of human figures. These images are from the Rainbow Room. – Robert Saint Rich
Saint Rich's black-and-white photographs are as thought-provoking as they are seemingly normal. There is mystery and ambiguity in his work – just like the dark figures hurriedly walking to get to their next destination. From the Rainbow Room will be released on January 19, 2021.
