Interview Ingo Robin: Looking for the abstract created by nature
The German photographer Ingo Robin says he shapes his work like a sculptor or painter. His subject matter is very divers. After working on advertising campaigns for big names (Nike, Adidas, Hugo Boss, Vogue) he focuses on dramatic landscapes, architectural images, realism, surrealism, Magritte type imagery. He likes contrasts, orchestrates man and nature and creates outrageous scenes. Not just eye-catching landscapes, but snow-covered Alps climbed by clowns. Or at sea, a clown clinging to a buoy. His recent photo series ‘Saltmines’ in Namibia, taken from a helicopter, is pure graphic art.
