Cosmo is a Toronto based photographer and Advertising Executive, who grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. Having travelled extensively, and lived on four continents, he has become a keen observer of humanity and the environments we create.
In our busy urban lives we seek to find both peace and balance. Cosmo explores this tension by capturing images that stand in stark contrast to their manic daytime selves. “During the day, objects become the negative spaces to society’s actions, at night whilst devoid of humanity, they’re the heroes of the story; you see them for exactly what they are - utilitarian structures that are beautiful in their own right.” Tapping into his 30 plus years of experience in graphic design has resulted in a collection of clean, arresting, graphic visuals that capture a calm and harmonious reflection of our societal landscape. The images he creates are both soothing and evocative, objects isolated in an inky sea of blackness, as if in a state of hibernation.
Cosmo’s work has been awarded by many national and international award shows, and has been featured extensively in publications such as Applied Arts, Clio’s, Communication Arts and Graphis, amongst others.
