Robertson, the only photographer the Eastman House (NY) Museum of Photography has ever awarded the privilege to jointly exhibit alongside Adams, will introduce his exceptional equine portraiture to American audiences for the first time when Fine Art Photography comes to the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event, presented by Bridgestone, April 25-28, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

His “statuesque” horse portraits, captured in a unique mobile studio, have become a runaway success in the United Kingdom, launching a 10-page feature, ‘Perfectly Portrayed,’ in Australia’s Equestrian Life, pictorials in Horse and Hound and Polo Times, selection by The Royal Scottish Academy, and commissions by Great Britain’s Gold Medal-winning Olympic team. Rolex is the first official presentation of his fine art horse photography in the United States.

“Each study,” Robertson said, “is meant to capture the stature and majesty of these amazing animals within surroundings that are sympathetic to their size and dominance, compelling the viewer to enter the captivating aura, beauty and energy these glorious animals possess and transmit.”

“The next experience we’re looking forward to is exhibiting at such a world-famous event as Rolex.”  No stranger to world-class venues, his fine art has appeared in the Arsenal Gallery-NY, in Sarasota, FL, and been exhibited and auctioned at Sotheby's NY. 

The first photographer ever offered residency at The Hermitage, America’s invitation-only artist retreat, he drew the attention of the George Eastman (of Kodak fame) House, subsequently leading to its Ansel Adams exhibition, 'Celebration of Genius' appearing in Scotland and his becoming the first photographer awarded the privilege by Eastman House to exhibit alongside the American master.
