Ari Marcopoulos

Genre: Photography

Dutch-born Ari Marcopoulos has realized the true American dream: being really cool and having famous friends. When he moved to New York in the 80s, he almost immediately fell in with the likes of Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and the Beastie Boys. He's traveled the world as a skate and snowboard, music and fashion photographer, but every picture of a model or some kid smoking pot looks and feels just as sensitive and important as the photos of his own kids.
