Robin Schwartz - Kehrerverlag Heidelberg

Photography gives us the opportunity to access our dreams, to discover the extraordinary.
Robin Schwartz

Robin Schwartz
Amelia und die Tiere

Amelia is in many ways your average American teenager. But since she was three years old, she has been subject of the photographs of a worldclass photographer with a predilection for photographing animals: her mom. And it’s not every teenager who has portraits of herself with elephants, llamas, ponies, tigers, kangaroos, chimpanzees, and endless dogs, cats, and other animals – portraits that hang in the collections of major art museums around the world.
Amelia and the Animals is Robin Schwartz’s second monograph featuring this collaborative photographic series. These images are more than documents of Amelia and her rapport with animals; they offer a meditation on the nature of interspecies communication and serve as evidence of a shared mother-daughter journey into invented worlds, of fables they enact together.
Schwartz’s (b. 1957) photographs are held in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and MoMA, New York, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C., San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art, Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris, and Museum Folkwang, Essen, Germany. She is an assistant professor of photography at William Paterson University and lives in New Jersey.
