Artist's statement

By Robert Cooper

It's a strange time we're living in a once in a lifetime experience. Self-quarantine and social distancing is a new way of life. I rarely go outside in following guidelines to help slow the spread of the corona virus. When I do go out, I bring my camera and document the things that I see and experience. Everything that is happening is history and one of the ways to ensure that it is documented is through photography.


Robert Cooper is a photographer and journalist living in upstate New York with 15 years of experience. Born in Lansing, MI, he moved to Hartford, CT, where he got his start in photography before moving to the Capital Region of New York.

His photography fluidly encompasses portraits, fashion, concerts, and events. His photography has been published along with his writings in the Hartford Advocate, New African Woman, a magazine out of England, The Alt weekly alternative paper in New York’s Capital Region, Essence magazine, and Black Hair Magazine.
