INTRODUCING SABO PHOTOGRAPHY
Beyond the News
Robert Sabo is a freelance photojournalist working in New York. Before embarking on his latest adventure, he spent a decade as a staff photographer with THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS. Prior to his work at THE DAILY NEWS, he worked as a senior picture editor with Getty Images. Before that he was a staff photographer at THE JOURNAL NEWS. He learned photography in the U.S. Navy where he graduated from NAVAL SCHOOL OF PHOTOGRAPHY and DINFOS School of Photojournalism and spent nine years active duty. He worked for various base newspapers before being selected to attend Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Mass Communication's military photojournalism program. After graduation from Syracuse, Robert joined the Battleship IOWA as one of only four Navy Photojournalists documenting life in the U.S. Navy including the photos of the explosion onboard USS IOWA in which 47 sailors were killed. He considers Walker Evans, Eugene Smith, Paul Strand, Robert Frank, Lewis Hine, Weegee and Elliott Erwitt to be his greatest inspirations. He lives in Croton-on-Hudson with Helen and their son Jonah. While recently many of his assignments focus on sports; his favorite photography comes from capturing the beauty of everyday life in and around New York.
