In the latest episode of Adorama's Through the Lens, a web docu-series which focuses on various professional photographers, the focus is on New York City-based photographer Omar Z Robles.
Robles, a Fujifilm X-Photographer, has an interesting personal history to go along with his diverse photographic portfolio. For 10 years, Robles worked as a mime. This training has given him a distinct approach to movement and eventually gave birth to his juxtaposing dancers against "rugged city landscapes." The combination of fluid motion and rigidity has proven a hit with many large brands. Robles remarks in the video below that miming is quite similar to photography in that both mediums attempt to tell a story without the use of words.
