DAVID FOKOS, born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1960, received his first camera – a Kodak Brownie – when he was 11 years old. He has worked with a view camera – a 5x7 at first, and later an 8x10 – for over 30 years. For the first 15 years, Fokos photographed in isolation on the Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard. It was during this time that the current style of his work began to emerge. Fokos’s work has since been the subject of over 50 solo exhibitions and can be found in many private, corporate and museum collections. He is currently represented by fifteen galleries on three continents. Mr. Fokos currently resides in San Diego, California where he makes his living as a photographic artist.
