Robin Schwartz

"Never work with animals and children" so the old show business saying goes! Obviously that's not something that Robin Schwartz seems to take to heart. I've featured a few photographers in the past who photograph animals as part of their work and I'm always glad when I come across another one who does it well. I think it takes a special kind of talent to make serious work and to avoid sentimentality when making pictures which include animals. Throw children into the mix, this case his daughter and well. Robin manages to avoid "cheese" and various other pitfalls and gives us some unique and thought provoking images instead.
