2015 Emerging Photography Contender: Marco Scozzaro

For Digital Deli, Brooklyn-based photographer Marco Scozzaro finds moments of abstraction and humor in scenes that might otherwise be banal, elevating them to a new—and aesthetically beguiling—realm.

Writes Scozzaro in his Artist Statement, “I am fascinated by the generic and I focus my attention on details that became abstractions and reveal a whole new world. I observe these elements, colors, shapes, textures, patterns and in-between moments as the syntax of the everyday. I play with them using a combination of modern and traditional tools, referencing and sampling cultural leftovers and visual debris, to create new and possible relations.”
