Published to accompany a highly anticipated traveling exhibition, Home Truths examines contemporary interpretations of one of the most enduring subjects in the history of picture-making: the image of the mother. Focusing on the work of 12 international photographers, it challenges the stereotypical or sentimental views of motherhood handed down by traditional depictions.

Art Desks features photographs of the desks and working spaces of artists, curators, art dealers, critics and tastemakers throughout the East Coast. This series began in 2011 in Washington, D.C. and has since expanded to other art markets. This series explores the idea of desk as portrait combined with the social experiment of navigating the art world.

These photographs will be published by Daylight Books in the fall of next year. The 8-inch-by-10-inch hardbound book will feature 96 photographs of art desks. This will be Robinson's first book published with an independent publisher.

The First edition of Summa Art Fair attracted more than 10,000 visitors and was a commercial success. Summa was held on September 19th to the 22nd. It gathered 64 galleries in the hall 16 of Matadero, a former slaugherhouse in the Arganzuela district of Madrid, which has been converted to a lively arts centre. Summa aroused a great interest among national and international collectors as well as the genetral public. Most of the exhibitors were very satisfied with the sales and made a lot of national and international contacts. They were curious about how a new art fair could be successfully run at the beginning of the arts season in Madrid. The results show the answer is clearly possitive!
