Robert B. is a photographer based in Berlin.
The child of an immigrant mother, he moved to London after studying photography in Munich and veered into advertising there. Returning to Germany after 12 years abroad, he founded CPGN Photography with a focus on male nudes, exploring Berlin‘s status quo of queer masculinity.
His work is mainly studio based, where he can create a protected environment and provide an open stage for men to be who they are – or who they want to be. While very stylised, his work allows for a fascinating insight into the current queer scene of Berlin, given the fact that he doesn’t direct his models, but let’s them “perform” freely. The result has therefore fittingly been titled “Masculinité Élastique” by a French journalist.
He is currently working on his first book.
