Ari Marcopoulos
Dutch, b. 1957
Follow

A photographer and filmmaker who gravitates toward elusive subcultures, Ari Marcopoulos photographs objects and cultures that pique his interest, such as sneakers with wide laces from New York’s 1980s hip-hop scene. Creating images with anthropological and ethnographic undertones, Marcopoulos has said that most of his photographs arise “through accidents or circumstances that just happen to present themselves.” Rather than romanticize his subjects, he depicts them in a straightforward manner that reveals their beauty and anxieties. Working as an assistant to Andy Warhol after emigrating to the United States, Marcopoulos favors analog film for its slowness and for the time it asks of the viewer. Most recently, he has begun to explore high-contrast landscape photography that conjures a vague and fleeting sense of familiarity.
