Amsterdam-born (1957) photographer and filmmaker, lives and works in New York and California. As a photographer, film artist and adventurist, marcopoulos, transplants himself into the intimate lives of people living on the edge. Artists, snowboarders, musicians and skateboarders have been both muses and commercial subject-matter throughout his quarter century career as a photographer. His stunning landscapes and playful portraiture offer a dramatic take on every day life, and a glimpse into all things awesome. The Berkeley art museum presented Marcopoulos’s first mid-career survey in the United States in 2010.
