Saul Robbins is interested in the ways people interact within their surroundings and the psychological dynamics of intimacy. His photographs are motivated by observations of human behavior and personal experience, especially those related to loss, unity, failure, and the latent potential residing in traditional photographic materials and personal history. Robbins is best known for the series “Initial Intake”, which examines the empty chairs of Manhattan-based psychotherapy professionals from their clients’ perspective; referencing viewer’s perceptions, associations, and responses to this unique environment and the work that takes place there. In 2012, Robbins created “How Can I Help? – An Artful Dialogue”, a pop-up office and exhibition environment decorated with “Initial Intake,” inviting passersby to speak with other artists and himself about anything they wish, for free and in complete confidence.
