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.

[You can see my two other 2015 Year In Reviews – Live Music recap here and my Celebrity recap here.]

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….
