Desks as Portraits” documents the desks of curators, collectors, writers, art critics, dealers, museum directors, artists and other tastemakers in Washington, D.C. The series explores the concept of desks as portraits and social experiment of navigating the D.C. art world.

“One photo shoot leads to another in which I ask for recommendations and names of possible subjects,” explained Robinson. “Further introductions are made and invitations accepted which allows me private access to photograph the workspace of people who are making significant contributions to contemporary art and photography.”
