°° Robin Schwartz - Amelia's world °°

Robin Schwartz’s Amelia’s World captures a fantastic universe where young Amelia plays the stand-in for our childhood fantasies of living as one amongst the animals.  Narratives such as Tarzan, The Jungle Book, and Romulus and Remus all touch upon this fascination with feral children and a collective desire to be communicate with beasts.  Amelia’s World is an imaginative visual reworking of these themes within a photographic medium.

Robin Schwartz has shown extensively in domestic and international shows, and her works are included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art (New York), The Metropolitan Museum (New York), The Brooklyn Museum (New York), The Smithsonian Institute (Washington D.C.) and The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (San Francisco) to name just a few.  Her monograph Amelia’s World was published in 2008 by Aperture.
