My name is Argenis Apolinario. I am a Bronx native and NYC based photographer. My parents are from Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. I studied Fine Arts at the Cooper Union School or Art. Creatively my practice started out in drawing and painting but in college I became more interested in photography. The common thread for me was always a pursuit and better understanding of light, color, and psychology. Since then, I’ve used my creative and personal experiences in my photographic craft where I document a variety of subject matter from portraiture, performance, working with cultural and educational spaces. I’m often interested subtle expressions and gestures, as a sort of psychological study of a subject or perhaps as a reflection of my own quiet introspections.
