Brian Kosoff is an accomplished master of the photographic process. After spending most of his life in photography he still considers himself a student of the medium! As a teenager, Brian was inspired by his uncle, a serious amateur photographer, and went on to spend 25 years as an award winning NYC advertising photographer. His meticulous work in advertising photographer brought him assignments for many Fortune 500 companies. It was the ideal laboratory to lay the groundwork for Brian’s luminous fine art photography.
Though the technical skills Brian brings to his craft are formidable, his motivation to create photographs is quite simple. “When I see a special moment or quality of light, something that moves me, I want to express it photographically. I want my photo to tell a story, have meaning, or have beauty” . We have been to many of the places that Brian has photographed, but have never seen it quite as breathtakingly serene or peaceful as Brian has depicted it. His vision and photographic skill brings an ethereal quality and mood to the images he’s created. His minimalist, perfectionist’s eye eliminates any element that might break the beautiful mood he sets by what he’s chosen to show us in the boundaries of the print. “I believe that any element not adding to the design, beauty or meaning detracts from the image and can obscure it’s expression”.
