At a young age, Bobby Whigham found photography as a means of personal, social and professional expression. Growing up in a city, he honed his perspective on the value of youth culture and importance of individuality while still in high school.
Fractured fragments of time have stayed a solid theme in his work, as he candidly documents the ever circuitous path that is growing up. His work always retains a raw respect for the honesty, discernment and taste that manages to somehow emerge, concrete, from the volatile landscape of youth. This sets him apart from the sexually obsessed perspectives that often dominate photography focused on young adult subjects.
Bobby's work immortalizes the conflicting cornerstones of youth—fearlessness, and vulnerability—and seeks to capture the constant evolution that makes us grow and change, always moving forward yet often looking back.
