Joshua Lawrence Kogan’s photographs take you by the hand, playfully pulling you into a seductive world where colors are electric, faces seem familiar, people live their passions, and nature gently embraces our humanity. In this world every action has a singular moment of perfection, each face tells a story, and the smallest details become larger than life.
Whether he’s photographing award winning actors, world class athletes, top models or people he encounters on the street, the American photographer’s passion for visual storytelling spans his works in travel, lifestyle, fashion, portraiture and fine art photography. In cinematic frames Joshua’s dramatic photographs capture the energy, emotion, sensuality and raw beauty of his subjects and the worlds they live in.
• I'm excited to announce the publication of "Acapulco Dream," which is due in Spring 2015. The book is 280 pages in 11x14" format and comprises over 350 images. Acapulco Dream is a fine art travel photography book produced in association with the Mexican Board of Tourism, the Governor of Guerrero Mexico, the Mayor of Acapulco, and Banamex Bank. This was such an amazing project...I can't wait to share it!
• I continue to work on a series of vibrant aquatic nudes of ballet dancers entitled "Watercolors." This series is exciting for me because it combines some wonderful things. Movement. Water. Swimming. Colors. Sensuality. Form. Grace. Balance. Emotion. Creativity.
• A portfolio of my photographs were recently acquired by the estate of Pablo Picasso. Working closely with Olivier Picasso, I had the privilege to supervise the printing and installation of seven large format prints at the Picasso family's home in Normandy.
