Robin Sellick is an Australian photographer who has been collaborating and creating with artists, musicians, actors, politicians, athletes and every day people for over 25 years, to create powerful and iconic images.
Whether shooting for the fringes or the noisy mainstream market, he is one of those rare artists who can cut through with an image that speaks volumes. His ability to work quickly and find distinctive creative solutions under a vast range of circumstances is what has always set Robin’s work apart from others.
The National Portrait Gallery of Australia has thirteen of Robin’s portraits in its permanent collection - more than any of his contemporaries. He is also in the collections of the National Library of Australia, the State Library of South Australia and many private collectors around the World.
Robin’s work has featured prominently in magazines like Vogue, Marie Claire, Who Weekly, Q, NME and Rolling Stone with subjects ranging from Cate Blanchett and Steve Irwin to Kylie Minogue and Radiohead.
He has published 2 books: Facing, 2004, is a collection of celebrity portraits spanning a decade of work. It became an exhibition, which toured art galleries across Australian for more than 2 years. Life & Times in the Republic of Broken Hill, 2011, combines portraiture with anecdotes and an unearthing essay to create a portrait of the town itself.
Robin has always been passionate and unconventional but years of experience have made him an excellent collaborator. He enjoys forging new paths and working on any sized project to help people realise their vision.
