Jack Robinson On Show Summary

Jack Robinson On Show: Portraits 1958-72 by George Perry

In a photographic career that spanned only seventeen years, Jack Robinson created an extraordinary body of work, that captured both the faces and the fashions of the 1960s - a defining period of twentieth-century popular arts. He regularly contributed Vogue's Own Boutique under the tutelage of Diana Vreeland, but in 1972 he suddenly abandoned his New York studio and spend the rest of his life in determined anonymity employed as a stained-glass designer in Memphis. When he died in 1997 at the age of 69, few people would have guessed that this reclusive artist had been at the centre of the glitterati in the Swinging Sixties and was acknowledged by his peers as one of the preeminent photographers in the business.

This unique collection has been selected and edited by those to whom Jack entrusted his precious archive. Showcasing 150 of his most compelling portraits, with a reflective introduction by critic George Perry, and a foreword by Cybil Shepherd, this is a fitting tribute to a master photographer whose work resonates with the spirit of the time.
