About the Author
Jack Robinson (19281997) was born in Meridian, Mississippi. His career as a photographer began during the early fifties in New Orleans where he documented the city’s street life and vibrant cultural scene. In 1955 he travelled to Mexico with the famous art dealer Betty Parsons. She encouraged him to pursue a career in New York as a fashion photographer; by the end of the fifties, his work was regularly featuring in Life magazine and The New York Times until 1965 when he moved to Vogue and shot many of his most memorable images. In December 1972, he left New York and moved to Memphis, where he earned a living as a water colorist and worked on stained glass windows.
