The Lumiere Gallery presents the solo exhibition of a fine art and fashion photographer Rob Woodcox.
Rob Woodcox was born in Houston, raised in Detroit, and currently splitting time between Mexico City, Los Angeles and New York City. He exercises his talent for photography with a passion that is unquenchable and contagious. As he creates
each piece of artwork, Woodcox strives to capture fragments of a vivid life sewn by the threads of reality, memory and dream. Each concept is a declaration of his experience and seeks to tell a meaningful story to each individual that views it.
Woodcox’s passion for photography has developed into a dedication for advocacy and making strained voices heard. The artist has produced projects raising awareness and conversation around the US foster system and adoption, queer identity, body positivity and racial diversity. Having been adopted as a child and interacting often with the foster care system, Woodcox creates from a unique perspective, finding hope in the human connection and the will to overcome negative constructs within our complex societies.
His subjects rediscover peace with the surrounding environment, with nature, returning a little bit even when they are placed inside a building.
“The core of my work is an expression of both personal and communal experiences. As I travel through the world I’ve
learned to see through various lenses; when I assess a situation I consider the outcome for different people involved, the affect on the planet, cultural grounding, etc. This has enabled me to create art that touches on technique, beauty, and social change. Every image I create tells both a personal and universal story. The inclusion of different bodies, the symmetry I create with line work, and the landscapes I venture into express narratives that intertwine humans with nature and create the foundation for a discussion around how we can live harmoniously with the environments that surround us”.
