Historical Context:
Robert Koropp was born in Chicago, Illinois. After serving in the army in World War II, he attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Later he studied photography at the Art Center School, also in Los Angeles. His artistic career began in commercial advertising, which included work for such prestigious clientele as Kellogg's, First National Bank, Amoco and Mobil, among others. Moving on to more personal endeavors, he created multiple bodies of photographic work including experimental and micro-photography, land and cityscape, still life and motion images and much more.
