Robert Machoian

Born in the small town of King City California, and raised up in the DIY Punk culture, Robert has been taking photographs and making films for the past 10 years. Three of his short films have premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and gone on to play festivals around the world. His second feature, GOD BLESS THE CHILD premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and screened around world. Robert’s photographs have appeared in such magazines at Filmmaker Magazine and Bright Ideas. His film and photograph projects come from the intimate experiences of his life and the lives of those around him.


This project explores Home, what that means. Is it objects/items we own? Is it the evidence you leave around? Is it the four walls you sleep in or play in? The town you run around in? The city you were raised in? Through two daughters I have adopted, and a son with ADHD, I strive to explore what Home means through their experience.
