The Studio of Joe Russo Photography. – Another year of shooting art related events is in the books. This was my first full year back on the East Coast since moving back almost 2 years ago. I tried to take on more art related events this year while shooting for Juxtapoz Magazine. Over the course of the year, many artists came across my lenses.
Looking foward to seeing what this year has to offer.
Here are some of my favorite art related photos from this past year. I hope you enjoy viewing these as much as I did taking them….
