What began as a short poster series over one year ago, has morphed into a significant graphic design endeavor encompassing pocket journals, notecards and t-shirts, most of which you can check out on Robertson’s site.
Besides his penchant for literary-influenced artwork, Robertson is also the mastermind behind the artwork for the band Bear Ceuse, and the co-creator of “The Paris Journal,” a digital book he worked on with his wife Nichole Robertson (co-creator of Obvious State) that uses photography and video to provide visual vignettes of Paris neighborhoods.
Street photography was my first love and it is something I’ve always done. In my early twenties, I moved from my childhood home in Kilkenny, Ireland to Paris, France. I was a post grad science student in Paris, devouring the humanistic work of Cartier Bresson, Eugene Smith & Andre Kertesz. Through a series of serendipitous events, my unearthed passion for photography evolved into a career as a commercial photographer.
All of my commercial work is informed by my attraction to street photography, in that I’ve always tried to make photos that had the spontaneity of a reportage photo despite their construction. It is not always easy but the instincts built up by constantly shooting for myself help.

“A Moment’s Reflection” is my ongoing study of specular, or mirror-like, reflections. My intention is to draw new connections between familiar forms by introducing specular reflections to environments where none would typically exist. The mirrors serve as a focal point within a given scene and also function as a window to provide an entirely unique perspective on the same location.
