Work by Jack Robinson
JACK ROBINSON (1928-1997) was an accomplished photographer, graphic designer, and stained glass designer in New Orleans, New York, and Memphis. While living in New York City from the mid 1950s through the early 1970s, Jack was a freelance photographer for Vogue magazine, The New York Times, and various other advertisement agencies. He landed his first magazine cover on Life magazine in 1959. In the 1960s, Robinson documented social changes through fine art photography.
Robinson did not seek the limelight during his life, but he did hope that his work would live on after him. He requested that a coffee table book of his celebrity portraits be produced after his death, and the heir to his estate, Dan Oppenheimer, ensured that Jack's dream became a reality. The Jack Robinson Archive, LLC, based in Memphis, works to share Jack's talent and promote his legacy.
