Rob Woodcox is a fine art and fashion photographer born in Houston, raised in Detroit, and currently splitting time between Mexico City, Los Angeles and New York City. He exercises his talent for photography with a passion that is unquenchable and contagious. As he creates each piece of artwork, Rob strives to capture fragments of a vivid life sewn by the threads of reality, memory and dream. Each concept is a declaration of his experience and seeks to tell a meaningful story to each individual that views it.
Rob’s passion for photography has developed into a dedication for advocacy and making strained voices heard. Rob has produced projects raising awareness and conversation around the US foster system and adoption, queer identity, body positivity and racial diversity. Having been adopted as a child and interacting often with the foster care system, Rob creates from a unique perspective, finding hope in the human connection and the will to overcome negative constructs within our complex societies.
In 2013 Rob went through his own “coming out” experience, a societal passage only necessary from the lack of education and acceptance within the greater population. Though a challenging and demanding experience, Rob used this energy to pursue his photographic goals full time and began touring the world teaching workshops and creating sponsored content. Rob has taught thousands of students in over 15 countries and 25 cities worldwide- he has taught over 70 workshops to date. In 2018, Rob put all of this experience and knowledge into an online Masterclass currently featured on Udemy. In 2019 Rob will continue to take on new clients while producing his first photographic art book. He will also embark upon various new educational endeavors including a workshop tour and seminars.
The body that breaks down and becomes something else, flexes and is manipulated creating infinitely fascinating compositions. Without gravity we see these bodies floating in the air creating a sort of silent dance. Movements and fluid sexuality. The body is no longer just a body but becomes form and movement, music and emotions..
