Robert Bianchi is a New York-based photographer who uses the photographic medium as a way to explore dreamy and spiritual dreamscapes through carefully composed digital compositions. His practice merges a deep contemplation of human nature, suspended between materiality and spirituality, with an obsessive attention to fractalic details and classical compositions. Bianchi has been a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome and his work has been exhibited and collected by Museums around the world. The Museum of the City of New York purchased twenty-eight images of his West Side Highway series, and his work is also part of the collection of the Brooklyn Museum, the Chrysler Museum, The Museum of Fine arts in Houston and the Museum de l’Eysee, Lausanne Switzerland. Robert Bianchi was the first artist working in photography to be given a one-person exhibition at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, highly acclaimed in the New York Times. His work has been exhibited and toured by the Kinsey Institute and recently shown at the Leslie Lohman Gallery in New York City. Some of the other galleries and Museums in which Robert Bianchi exhibited and had one person shows are: the Fotografie Fourum Interntional, Frankfurt Germany, Valloadold Museum,Spain, The Ken Damy Museum Italy, The Isses Gallery, Kyoto Japan, Mocha, New York, The Alternative Museum, Ledel Gallery, New York, the Barbara Greene and Fotosphere Gallery in New York, and the Joel Soroka Gallery in Aspen. More recently, he has exhibited in New York City at the Armory Show at Salomon Arts Gallery, in a two-person show at One Art Space, and in a two-person exhibition at Shchukin Gallery.
