Jeffrey Robins (b.1989) was raised in Vista, CA and is currently based in Long Beach, CA. From a young age he has used photography as a tool to navigate social anxiety and depression, using the distance created by the camera as a means to overcome and connect with is subjects. Today he uses his work to tell evocative stories which he hopes can inspire others whom have had similar struggles. Utilizing multiple mediums and formats, he considers himself a "tactilian," with an interest in the physicality of the photograph and the book. Jeff is an alumni of UCSD's Visual Arts Department. He has exhibited regionally and has ambitions of reaching a much broader audience.
