Robert Flynt is a well-established artist who has exhibited his work in New York for over twenty years. His work is represented in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, and International Center for Photography, among many others. His photographs have long been characterized by the layering of original and found imagery (with source material as diverse as anatomy charts, first aid text books, astronomical maps, 19th-century etchings, tintypes, x-rays, menswear catalogues, and photographs of classical statuary). Formerly known for photographing figures underwater, Flynt eventually emerged from the pool and began working in an unlit studio, “painting” around his figures with small light sources during the course of the extremely long exposures.
