ABOUT OMAR Z. ROBLES:
Omar Z Robles is an NYC based photographer born and raised in Puerto Rico. His interest in storytelling began with one man: Marcel Marceau. The legendary mime actor taught him how to interpret the world through subtle but riveting movements. But before juxtaposing the clean lines of dancers against rugged city landscapes, Omar was shooting celebrities, athletes, artists, politicians, and city dwellers for The Chicago Tribune’s Hoy, Metro San Juan, and Latino Leaders. With over 300k followers, his social media acumen has made him an influencer for Leica, Adobe Lightroom, Peak Design, Jaguar, Gap, Esquire Magazine, and more.
