Charles Robinson, son of a painter, was born the same year in New York City and from an early age carried a camera as his constant companion.  He learned to develop and print his own work as a kid in his grandparents’ darkroom and went on to study photography as a teenager at Trinity School and then Haverford College.

Sebastião Salgado, the Brazilian social documentary photographer and photojournalist, remains one of his greatest role models.  Like Salgado, Charles also completed a Master’s Degree in finance (Columbia University) and frequents developing markets in an attempt to understand their evolution.  An American, French and British citizen, he has travelled to 56 countries and nearly every state in America.   He discovered Europe as an exchange student at KU Leuven University in Belgium.  Work subsequently took him from NYC to Hong Kong and then on to London in 2004 with his Korean wife and two kids.  While Charles has always inhabited mega metropolises, his work is typically devoid of people.
