Robin Assner-Alvey (b.1978, Massachusetts) is a practicing artist working with photography, video, and installation. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Connecticut (2000) and her Master of Fine Arts from the Ohio State University (2002). Her work examines corporality and asks viewers to consider the experience of living in their own skin. She experiments with various photographic processes to push the boundaries of what a photograph can be as well as to question what it means to be a woman. Throughout Robin's art practice, she uses her personal experiences as a starting point for her ideas and then investigates those ideas photographically, usually using her own body. Robin's most recent solo exhibition was Reassembled at Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, OH in 2022. Her art has been exhibited in various solo and group shows throughout the United States.

She has been at Webster since 2003 and she teaches all levels of photography and video. Robin loves experimenting with photography and pushing her students to investigate the limitless photographic possibilities. In 2017, she received the Emerson Excellence in Teaching Award and the William T. Kemper Award for Excellence in Teaching.
