Abby Robinson, a photographer from New York City, has been actively working on two series of photographs. 'Space Invaders' involves images of figures positioned awkwardly and often humorously in their environment. 'Auto Works' is a project she has been pursuing for nine year years and she says 'will likely continue into old age.' The very small (1 3/4 x 2 3/4) self portraits convey a certain sense of intimacy that add interest by their scale.

While working in Syracuse, Abby will be 'committing little murders', beginning work on a new detective series titled 'Private Investigations'. The series will include portraits of detectives working in Syracuse, and making up, but not solving detective stories.
