Ari Marcopoulos (born 1957) is an Amsterdam-born American photographer and filmmaker. He lives and works in New York and California. As a photographer, film artist and adventurist, Marcopoulos, transplants himself into the intimate lives of people living on the edge. Artists, snowboarders, musicians and skateboarders have been both muses and commercial subject-matter throughout his quarter century career as a photographer. His stunning landscapes and playful portraiture offer a dramatic take on everyday life, and a glimpse into all things awesome. The Berkeley Art Museum presented Marcopoulos’s first mid-career survey in the United States in 2010. Marcopoulos is represented by Kavi Gupta of Chicago and Berlin.
