Take a Picture It Lasts Longer. Le titre est de ceux que l’on aime. Il va comme un gant autravail de Robin Graubard (États-Unis, 1951) qui s’est souvent plu à en raconter l’origine.La scène se déroule en 1963 dans un cinéma new-yorkais. Âgée de douze ans, Robin a emmené sa frangine voir _From Russia with Love-, le dernier James Bond.
Robin Graubard's work, over the past 40 years, has explored and blurred the boundaries between documentary, autobiography, fiction. In the 1980s, Graubard documented aspects of the Lower East Side punk scenes and the nocturnal hustle of a then still dangerous Times Square but also travelled to Eastern Europe, Jamaica and Hawaii. Travelling both East and West on a political and poetical map, Graubard occupies a hard-to-define position in relation to her subjects. There remains a sense of the unresolved at play in her art, a nagging sense that something remains unsaid.
Robin Graubard was born in 1951 and lives and works in New York, USA. She studied film and dance and received a BFA in 1977 from NYU Film School. She has shown her work previously in solo exhibitions at JTT, New York; White Columns, New York and Anthology Film Archives, New York. Group shows include White Columns, New York; Participant Inc., New York and Photographic Research Center, Boston. Her photographs have been published in The New York Times, Paris Match, The Guardian, Time, Newsweek, Der Spiegel, Die Welt and others.
Her work is part of the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York and the Brooklyn Museum, New York.
