Robin James Arts


Robin's Passion

The Minolta XD 11 was the camera that started Robin's passion for photography at the young age of 15. The camera was handed down to her by her mom as a Christmas present. Since then her passion for photography has grown and her style and eye has changed. Her work has a whimsy and solitude about it. The abstract and surreal mingle with her love of nature, architecture and people.​
