Robert Downs (1927 – 1976) was an American photographer. He sought to transmit his inner feelings to others through his work in photography. Even while employing other known styles in photography, he was known to bring a unique angle to it through his creativity. His contributions in this field are reckoned with and he’s widely respected for his works. He was known for figurative, abstract expression. He got interested in art at a young age and could spend much of his time looking at what other artists were doing. He was a keen observer and would not let anything pass by. He was also very keen to detail. He studied at the California School of Fine Arts, MFA, California College of Arts & Crafts, Oakland, and Mills College, Oakland. His work has been featured on covers and editorial and video spreads for many magazines. His clients included Kaman Music, Sennheiser, Roland, Sony Pictures, and the Los Angeles Times. All of them still have framed Robert Downs art. Downs inherited his creativity from both sides of the parental well. His farther was a photojournalist for more than 40 years with the Atlanta Journal, while his mother was a graphic artist. He used to beg his father to take him to work with him on the weekends. He was helping his father to carry all the staff photographer's cameras to the football field and pick up film at half-time. His father would reward him by allowing him to use the camera and dump his film in with the rest of the guys.
