Bobby Doherty started taking photos at age eight, when he picked up his first camera. He later moved to New York to study photography at the School of Visual Arts and then began a career in the field. Hyper-real colours and textures, memorable digital compositions and almost lurid still lifes combine to create a distinctive style that is entirely Doherty’s own. With an eye for minute detail, his work is visually rich, whether he is focused on the human form or on a single droplet of water on a flower’s petal.
Doherty was a long-time contributor and staff photographer at New York magazine, where he shot everything from celebrity portraits to fast food. He has also contributed to Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Allure and many more. His first book, Seabird, a collection of personal work, was published in 2018. His commercial clients include Balenciaga, Apple and Uber Eats.
