Ari Marcopoulos - Entropy
Ari Marcopoulos was born in Amsterdam in 1957 and moved to New York in 1980, at the height of the city’s art scene. An artist, filmmaker, and photographer, his body of work includes portraits, street scenes, and landscapes from places as diverse as Tokyo, Lebanon, New Orleans, Brooklyn, and the California coast. His subjects have been musicians, celebrities, artists, and friends, as well as the anonymous denizens of the boroughs he has wandered. His images are saturated with movement and transformation, with outsiders, the underground, and the periphery, with discontinuities and amnesia.
