Robin Schwartz does photography. Her pictures appeared in many magazines, hang in many museums and she has published "Amelia's World" in 2008, LIKE US: "Primate Portraits" in 1993, and "Dog Watching" in 1995. Amelia is Robins daughter and she is in a lot of her pictures. Her website shows a lot of her work, it is: http://www.robinschwartz.net/main.php
Some of her photographs are very busy and noisy, some are very fairy like and some are very clean and slick as though carefully staged. I love all of her photos, of course some more than others, but I absolutely love the way she works with her daughter and animals within one frame. (Just a little side note; I sometimes find myself counting all the different animals on some of her pictures... it is amazing how many animals and how many different kinds she has around!)

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