Robert Fischer is a photographer and artist who once thought his life path would be that of a psychologist. Instead, he chose to lead a creative life as a painter, sculptor and a photographer.
He appreciates that the camera provides him the opportunity to closely examine his skewed perspective of life, sexuality and personality. He sees himself really a painter that takes pictures. He is often in pursuit of getting the image rather than the perfect photograph.
Robert Fischer was the subject of the 1999 documentary Original Schtick, which covered his 3-months collaborating with several Australian artists and fine-art galleries. It’s a fascinating exploration of fame, self-promotion, the business and fine-art world and what can be created thru being a force of personality and maybe some questionable ethics.
Robert Fischer’s new book of photography is Vignettes.
