“I am always fascinated by the promise of photography to fulfill something in me and to offer balance in my life. I have become lost and found in its pursuits.”
John Kosmopoulos is a multiple international award-winning photographer who embodies a new school or philosophy of photography known as “eclectic aesthetic fine art” (EAFA). He specializes in both black and white and “muted color metallics” fine art photography. His work has been published and featured in several interviews, magazines, books, promotions, galleries, film (“Greece Year Zero”) and in the Louvre Museum in Paris.
Based in Toronto, Canada, John is always in search of an artistic enlightenment through the practice of an insightful imagination to fulfill his photographic vision as an artist. His signature images capture the complexity of beauty across multiple subjects and translate them back to the viewer with a felt aesthetic and visual sophistication that is symbolic, thematic and cinematic. His background as an author and educator in the behavior sciences has lead him to develop a psychology of photography, “Vision Drawings / Oramagraphy”, that promotes a personal and parallel world of feeling that you are immersed in something that is intellectually and imaginatively beautiful in the creative process while embracing the paradox that reality is both essential and negotiable in fine art photography. He has written extensively on both theoretical and practical photography principles and concepts and conducts fine art long exposure photography workshops in his home city and around the world.”
