Rob Torres was one of the funniest and most professional clowns in the world. Having performed in over 80 countries throughout his life, he brought laughter to thousands if not millions of people creating a fan base that was truly world-wide.

Tragically in late June, Rob died of a heart attack while flying to an engagement in Boston.

Rob and I were working on a book project tentatively titled “A Clown in Our Town” which included photographs of Rob in many of the locations where he performed using iconic geographical locations to showcase his clown character in that particular town.  We shot in Paris, St. Louis and New York and had plans to shoot in 6 other cities during his upcoming tours.

While planning this tribute book, I realized that Rob had been captured by many other wonderful photographers.  I reached out to a number of my colleagues who had also had the pleasure and opportunity of capturing Rob performing.  I am fortunate to have Maike Schulz, Michelle Bates and a few others share their own vision through photographs of Rob performing in different venues.  Their work will contribute to the second part of the book. I have also contacted his family to contribute photographs of Rob in his early years of performing.
To produce this tribute, funds are needed for graphic design work and publishing. I encourage you to share Rob’s vision and help make this book a wonderful TRIBUTE to Rob Torres - anybody who ever met him or saw him perform knows how much he truly deserves it.

So please, give what you can, tell who you can, and let's start this journey together.

Please continue by clicking this link  and seeing the proposed book cover and some of the outstanding images of Rob Torres by the generous photographers who contributed to this Tribute book.
