Robin Layton

hoop the american dream/Robin Layton Photography

@robinlayton
Robin Layton is an award winning photojournalist, filmmaker and renowned artist.
Her newest coffee table book, hoop: the american dream, contains photographs of unique basketball hoops across America and the childhood hoops of some of the most revered players of our time. Thirty one players (15 women and 16 men) gave her quotes and stories to go with the photos and Jerry West wrote the forward. The book is dedicated to Pat Summitt and a portion of the proceeds are going to The Pat Summitt Foundation, supporting the fight against Alzheimer's. It's also dedicated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
At the age of 24, Life Magazine named Robin as one of the eight most talented photographers in America. Nikon calls her one of the best photographers in the world and recently selected her as a Nikon Ambassador, United States. Her work has been nominated for a Pulitzer prize and featured in the Smithsonian. Her client list includes; President Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jennifer Aniston, Dr. Phil, Sidney Poitier and many more.
Robin lives in Seattle with her partner and their four well loved rescue dogs.
