Readers' Showcase: Rob Kearney

NYC April, 2007. New York in the rain is just so very photogenic. The Canon 50mm 1.2 does an amazing job of isolating subjects and accentuating texture. Photo by Rob Kearney

When he was just 19, Rob Kearney had developed an encyclopedic knowledge of cameras and a position at a local camera shop (for which he was the only applicant). With his Leica M6 and 50mm Summicron, he fancied himself the Cartier-Bresson of New Haven, Connecticut. He continued his education as a freelance photo assistant in New York City, eventually detouring into full-time photo retouching. He now oversees a team of re-touchers, and in his spare time shoots street scenes and graphic-inspired still life for himself. 

Learn more about his career in our Q&A, and see more of his personal work at his website. Would you like to be featured in an upcoming Readers' Showcase? Let us know! Be sure to include your DPR user name and a link to your online portfolio.
