Unseen: Midnight Studio

A side of Robert Farber unseen for over 40 years.

"…Because of a mindset guided by my formative years growing up in a traditional American household, I hid behind a different name when publishing my more provocative work. Over time I became less inhibited and more open, eventually no longer feeling a need to hide behind a pseudonym. Now I’m provocative and proud of it."

THE UNSEEN 1970s


In not wanting to tarnish the reputation he was trying to build after his first book of fine art nudes was published (“Images of Woman” 1976), Robert Farber sometimes worked under the pseudonyms Rupert Danes or Hillary. These images are from some of the those 1970’s magazines, such as Playboy, Penthouse, Hustler, Viva and Club.

"Taxi Driver New York was part of an assignment for a European magazine editorial in 1977 published under a different name. Because of a mindset guided by my formative years growing up in a traditional American household, I hid behind a pseudonym when publishing my more provocative work. Over time I became less inhibited and more open, eventually no longer feeling a need to hide behind a different name. Now I’m provocative and proud of it."
