Inside the Photographer’s Mind: Gretchen Robinette

Photographer Gretchen Robinette spoke to us about what it’s like documenting people as they go about their everyday lives on Inside the Photographer’s Mind.

We’ve interviewed photographer Gretchen Robinette in a number of articles on the Phoblographer, and recently she joined us for a live interview for Inside the Photographer’s Mind. We discussed a number of big issues such as whether or not it’s okay to photograph people in public without their permission. But of course, we spoke about so much more.

Gretchen at the moment is well known for her Unlimited Metrocard series that has been making the rounds for years. It opened up the idea of gear, technique, rights to privacy in public, and speaking/interacting with your subjects. Gretchen has often hid behind the camera a bit out of shyness; but she’s also quite good at simply interacting with people. You can tell this by her work at concerts, with musicians, etc. At the Adorama Event Space, we were able to show to attendees much of the work that Gretchen does when it comes to shows, concerts, and we even heard a really fantastic story involving the Eagles.

When you get a moment, be sure to tune in and watch.
