Robin Townsend, Photographer

Biographical Information

Robin Townsend operates from the fishing port of Roses (Girona province) on the Mediterranean coast of northeastern Catalonia, Spain. He currently works as a photojournalist for the Spanish national news agency Agencia EFE covering a wide variety of subjects. He has produced an extensive archive of images: Mediterranean forest fires, blizzards, seacoast storms and floods, Europe’s 2001 Meat Panic (hoof and mouth disease), classical swine fever, as well as the flux of human immigration, Europe’s new challenge.

Graduating from the University of Barcelona with a degree in Modern History, Robin took a deep interest in the rural life, architecture, agriculture and ethnology of the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean documenting them photographically since the early 1970’s, receiving several grants from the Spanish government to carry out this task. He has published an extensive number of picture stories on this subject in numerous magazines and newspapers in Europe and the U.S.A.

Robin’s agricultural photography is concentrated on typical Mediterranean and Pyrenean livestock (sheep, goats, cattle) and crops (grapes, olives, wheat, rice, horticulture etc.), as well as forestry, especially cork forests and the production process. He has a file of landscapes of all the areas where he has worked, which is continuously being updated.

Robin alternates his editorial photography with art and museum work, photographing exhibitions, paintings and sculptures of artists for major museums and galleries in Barcelona and southern France. He also produces images for use in travel books, postcards, brochures etc. Robin works with 35mm, medium format and 4x5. The vast majority of his agricultural work is produced with 35 mm, and recently has begun working with digital cameras.
