Robinson's Sheena series captures the private moments of sex-trade workers, hustlers and junkies within the stark daylight of their public realm. Here deploying the pictorial technique made famous by Rembrandt known as chiaroscuro Robinson's rich contrast of lights and darks make radiant the victims of a world class city's excesses and experimentations. Distinct from photographer Lincoln Clarkes' empathetic and humanistic noirish black and whites of Vancouver prostitutes, Robinson's portraits matter-of-factly attend to the spoils of the Vancouver port-city epidemic as Vancouver's own prescripted vibrant drama.
