About Robbert Flick

With elegance, wit, and conceptual and formal rigor, Robbert Flick produces photographic chronicles of urban and rural landscapes. He is best known for three seminal series: In “Midwest Diary” (1971-76), Flick photographed the rural Midwest in minimalist black-and-white photographs. For “Arena” (1977-79), he spent two years photographing a parking garage, transforming it from a utilitarian structure into a study of geometry, light, and shadow. In “Sequential Views” (1980-86), he sequenced numerous individual shots of L.A. urban vistas into large grids, which read as filmstrips and as abstract patterns.
