Jack Robinson was born in Mississippi in 1928 and grew up in Clarksdale. In the early 50s, he honed his craft through photographing his life and friends in the New Orleans French Quarter. Through friends made in New Orleans, Jack moved to New York City in 1957 and found work in freelance fashion photography for various New York advertisement agencies. In 1959, his photograph of Isabella Albonico was selected as a cover photograph for LIFEMagazine. Through the early 1960s, Jack was a frequent contributor to the New York Times Sunday Magazine and the Sunday Times Fashion Supplement. In 1965, he followed Carrie Donovan to Vogue, where he worked as a freelance photographer until 1972. His photographs appeared over 500 times in Vogue, making Jack one of Vogue’s most prolific contributors. After his return to Memphis, Jack spent the remainder of his life working as a stained glass designer. He passed away in 1997.The Jack Robinson Archive, LLC was created in 2003 to preserve and promote Jack’s legacy and body of work. In November 2011, the Archive fulfilled Jack’s dream of a coffee table book of his photographs with the release of Jack Robinson On Show: Portraits 1958-72. Jack left behind thousands of negatives, and the archive is still in the process of scanning and restoring his beautiful work. Each new envelope of negatives offers countless surprises. Business partnerships with Getty Images, Staley-Wise Gallery in New York, and Starwood Hotels have been critical to the Archive’s development. A selection of Jack’s work is available online at www.robinsonarchive.com, and on permanent display at The Jack Robinson Gallery, 400 South Front Street in downtown Memphis, TN. Hours are Monday through Friday, 10 AM to 5 PM.
