James J Robinson is a photographer and filmmaker from Melbourne based in New York. With an academic background rooted both in literature and cinema, each project is loaded with a calculated subtext beyond the lights and colours.
Robinson began his career at 17 with the co-establishment of agency and publishing house ‘AEVOE’, where he managed over 40 artists from around the globe connecting them with clients and publishing their work. Now at 23, he has gone to shoot for major clients such as The New York Times and Vogue Australia, as well as working with celebrity figures including Kylie Jenner and Rihanna.
Despite commercial success, Robinson aims to keep his work grounded in celebrating the lives of everyday people – choosing to use his work as a conduit for social change and identity politics.
