Rob Schiller Photography - Home


Influenced by the works of William Eggelston, Lee Freidlander, and Diane Arbus, Robert Schiller seeks to capture the strange and exhilarating.  Says Schiller, “I look for symmetry, but I also look for things that are opposites, or politically incorrect in society.  I try to see what other people may miss, or choose to ignore.”  These observations take on tones of beauty and grime, happiness and sorrow, humanity and cruelty, often combining contrasting emotions within the same scene, alluding to life's dualities.  Composed in the realm of the unexpected, the photography of Robert Schiller portrays the raw and often overlooked truth of a person or place.  By singling out the individual, Schiller’s portraits manage to comment on society in its entirety, often putting an ironic twist on stereotypes.

On a technical note, some of Rob's photographs may appear to be manipulated or computer altered.  However, each image is the product of an original, untouched 35mm negative.  Except for minor cropping, no computer-generated effects are employed in enhancing or altering images.  All work is composed in front of the camera, and all images are formed during the time between the opening and closing of the camera's shutter.
