About the Event
My journey into the world of photography started at the age of six with
a firecracker and a bottle. Ever since then I’ve been seeing with monocular vision … just like a camera does. I was born in the ‘50’s in Staten Island, New York, one of nine children.
Perhaps it was the need to prove that I could see as well as, or better than, everyone else that led me to explore photography.
I excelled at the School of Visual Arts and was offered a one-man show at the prestigious Camera Club of New York, established by Alfred Stieglitz in 1884 as the first gallery dedicated to photography as an art form. Other doors opened up for me while still in school. My thesis instructor, James Moore, offered me a position as his assistant, thus introducing me to the world of fashion where I’ve enjoyed 40 years of photographing beautiful and interesting people in outrageous garments in spectacular places. I’ve got more than 50 magazine covers to my name, among them ELLE, HARPER’S BAZAAR and GLAMOUR. I exhibited a body of work at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in the Louvre Palace which reflect on my first trip to Japan. More recently I had a one-man show in a small gallery in Paris. The show was entitled FLASHBACK. It gave me reason to revisit many of my best fashion assignments from the late ’90’s and early 2000’s, all of which I shot with flash outdoors. Just this year I presented a more recent body of work in a prestigious gallery in Uzès. The theme was “miniature”.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with many major brands for their advertising campaigns, among them: Cerruti, ClubMed, Trussardi, Canon Camera, Desigual, and many others.
