Robin became a photographer after working as a civil rights attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union for many years. She holds degrees from Stanford University, New York University School of Law, the One-Year Certificate Program in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the International Center for Photography and the MFA Program in Photography at the University of Hartford.

Nicole Rosenthal is a born and raised New Yorker. Her work has been shown in several group exhibitions in the US, Europe and Cuba and is in the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum Library. As a teenager in the late 1980’s, she was fascinated by material culture and how it played out on the streets of the city. After earning a BA in Art and Semiotics from Brown University, Nicole photographed for the Associated Press and regularly contributed portraits and photo illustrations to national print magazines. Interested in learning more about narrative within photography, Nicole then earned an MFA from the University of Hartford’s photography program. Nicole has just begun teaching with the JHP, and she is appreciating the perspective and energy her students are bringing to the classroom.
