b. 1939
.
Robert von Sternberg was born in Glendale, California in 1951. He has lived and worked in Los Angeles throughout his life, and its landscape heavily influences his work. Human encroachment into the natural world is a recurring theme in his photographs, a theme he depicts more than any other. Von Sternberg’s photographs are often distant and elusive, as he primarily captures locations or scenes where humanity is notably absent.
