Robin Hill - "The Art of the Orb"
Robin Hill, born and raised in Nottingham, England, is a Miami and New York based photographer who straddles the boundaries between architecture, design, and fine art through photography. Hill first became known through MiMo (Miami Modern), a movement to preserve post-war modern architecture in Miami, resulting in the seminal exhibition at The Municipal Art Society in New York City and the publication of “MiMo: Miami Modern Revealed,” the first of 20 book collaborations.
The Art of the Orb presents eight unique perspectives of The Betsy Orb, which has become a Miami Beach landmark and serves as a functional bridge connecting the two Betsy buildings over the alleyway between Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive. The works are displayed inside the actual Orb and allow the guests passing through to gradually understand where they are.
Hill's work has been exhibited at MOMA, The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Guggenheim Museum NY, and the Cooper Hewitt Museum. He has worked with some of the world's leading architects, including Herzog & de Meuron, Zaha Hadid, and Arquitectonica. Hill works actively with Architectural Digest, Vanity Fair, W Magazine, Vogue, Elle Decor, National Geographic Traveller, Harper's Bazaar, and many other publications.
