About Robert

One of the pre-eminent portrait photographers of our time, Robert Maxwell is a unique artist who successfully balances fashion and celebrity photography with a fine art practice.  Maxwell's deeply expressive portraits are at once contemporary and steeped in the history of photography.

Maxwell's work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Camerawork in Berlin and Fahey/Klein Gallery in Los Angeles. Arena Editions published his first monograph Robert Maxwell: Photographs in 2000. Maxwell's advertising clients include Nike, American Express, Bergdorf Goodman and Bloomingdales. His editorial work has appeared in W, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Time, Newsweek, and Interview, among others. For T: The New York Times Style Magazine's ambitious and ongoing Originals project, Maxwell has traveled around the world to photograph more than 200 leading figures in their fields whose one commonality is their original sense of style.
