Now legally blind, Weinberg created braille labels to accompany his work, ensuring that his photographs are accessible to all. He continues to advocate for the visually impaired community by promoting organizations to assist people with low vision to live independently.
Robert Weinberg was born in Denver to David and Faye Weinberg. His passion for photography began in East St. Louis as a Vista Volunteer photographer. After he honed his craft, he moved back to Colorado and started his own photography business. In the following decades, Weinberg captured the personal stories that intertwined in Denver during the 1980s and 1990s.
Weinberg began losing his sight in the early 1990s, and by 1998 he was legally blind. It took years for him to acclimate to his new life. He credits organizations like the Colorado Center for the Blind, Colorado Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, Colorado Talking Books Library, and National Industries for the Blind for helping him learn to live independently as a person who is visually impaired.
