feature: photography series from jp robbins captures the modern, raw style of the ‘halliburton brothers’

August 1, 2016

New York- based photographer JP Robbins never ceases to capture the most stylistically natural aspects of all she photographs. Primarily a portrait photographer, the subjects of Robbins’ pieces are beautifully manipulated to amplify their most striking components, all while maintaining their raw essence. In her ‘Halliburton Brothers’ series, she effectively pairs the similarities between Mark and Kirk Halliburton, with a contrast of light and lack of visual distraction to highlight their differences. A calming, simplistic representation of symbiosis, Robbins’ ‘Halliburton Brothers’ is a modern interpretation of a traditional portrait, and a soothing documentation of Black-brotherhood.
