THE PROFILE: ALL ABOUT ROBERT

THE PROFILE: ALL ABOUT ROBERT

THE PROFILE: All about Robert Farber who is a renowned photographer. His style has influenced generations of artists. His painterly, impressionistic style captures the essence of composition in every genre, including nudes, still life, landscapes and architecture. Author of ten photo art books which have sold over half a million copies.
One of my favorite stories about Robert is his connection to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.  She brought Farber into Doubleday for the publication of his book “By The Sea,” which won the Art Director’s Award for color photography. A recipient of numerous creative awards, Robert Farber also received the Photographer of the Year from PMA (Photographic Manufacturers Association), ASP International Award from the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and The American Society of Photographers.

His work with nudes in fine art as well as in the commercial realm is known and well respected. He has lectured for Ogilvy & Mather on the “Nude in Advertising.” His book, “Farber Nudes,” was also included the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis estate collection (of course I’d have to mention her again).
Farber’s fine-art photographs have been published in virtually every form. Apart from his fine art photography, Robert Farber’s work encompasses major campaigns for fashion, beauty and advertising, as well as directing for TV and film. A documentary highlighting Farber’s life and career is in development for PBS.
