Belly Dancer by Paul Esposito

Paul Esposito was born, raised, and educated in New York, and has been a student of the visual arts since childhood.  After graduating from NYU and enjoying a prolific career in advertising, he now concentrates on doing his own work creating evocative pieces through a synthesis of fine art and documentary photography. His solo exhibition at the Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center, masked tribes of modern America, includes black & white and color photographic pieces. “I try to see the grace and dignity of my subjects, searching ‘the everyday’ for the exotic,” he explains. “It’s a fundamental human instinct that the faces of other members of our species are often more compelling and engaging than any inanimate object…the photographs in this on-going portrait series depict ordinary people whose appearance is transformed into extraordinary manifestations.” Mr. Esposito, who has travelled the world extensively and lived in a myriad of cities, is currently a resident of Poughkeepsie, NY.
