Artist Robert Perez utilized photography early on in his development as an artist. Running a genetics lab at Columbia University for over 11 years, all through the '90s, introduced Perez to early versions of Photoshop, as well as, photography development in the darkroom before digital was readily available. He was an early adopter of digital photography, buying his first one from a Sony employee before the market was aware.
His early works were reproductions in charcoal on paper and wood of his black and white photographs that were manipulated repeatedly after the darkroom through such items as scanners and photocopiers, and later in software. Photography eventually matured into it's own medium in his oeuvre.
He currently owns and operates his professional art and photography studio on the east end of Long Island, NY. To Learn More Visit: Robert Perez Studio
