Profotos Member Biography - Santi-Jose Acosta

All art, photography being one of the forms, is organic and always growing. It is the source of the light and space, two essential qualities that determine what kind of growth occurs. Capturing the essence of a scene in a single instant, that which emerges from the chaos at a construction site or a night walk in the city fog, is what I find most rewarding. The challenge is not in depicting the forms but in recognizing the totality of the image. Magically infusing power into small incidents. Transforming everyday objects and moments into icons. A natural street abstraction of light and shadows. The blurring of what is and is not. To combine the compositional rigor of documentary photography with the magic of Romanticism.

I feel that art is supposed to wake up emotions. The most important part is that there is no stipulation on whether such emotions are positive or negative. The only requirement is that they must be. There are always many points of entry. The work is accessible if you're open to it.

My interests are in exposing the inner city spaces we inhabit. Both the human and non-human contradictory experiences. These Urban Landscape images transform the qualities of deterioration into opportunities for formal, aesthetic, and social invention, blurring the sharp contours of fact and fiction, image and reality. I am a photo-artist, based in New York City. I am not a decisive-moment photographer.
