Historical Context:
Robert Koropp was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1924. After serving in the army in World War II, he attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois where he received his Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, receiving his Master of Chemistry from the University of California, Los Angeles. Later he studied photography at the Art Center School, also in Los Angeles. His artistic career began in successful 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. Koropp has published several photography books and has produced limited-edition fine art prints for private and corporate collections.
