Robert Weingarten was born in New York City in 1941 and graduated from Baruch College with a Finance degree in 1962. Although photography had always been a passion, it was not until the 1990s that Weingarten abandoned a successful career in business to pursue art full time. Weingarten’s photographs have been shown in more than 70 exhibitions worldwide. His work is included in the permanent collections of the George Eastman House, the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others.
