The story behind Robert Farber’s 1977 image, “NY Taxi Driver” reveals an unseen side of his career.
In his words:
“This image was part of an assignment for a European magazine editorial in 1977 published under a different name. I used a pseudonym because my first book of fine art nudes, “Images of Woman” (1976) had been published and I didn’t want to tarnish the reputation I was trying to build. This was because of a mindset guided by my formative years growing up in a traditional American household. Liberal enough where it would be acceptable to publish a book of nudes, but not without some self-restraint. Over time I became less inhibited, eventually no longer feeling a need to hide behind a pseudonym. Now I’m provocative and proud of it.”
