A photographer with a painter’s eye for light and shadow and a filmmaker’s imagination for narrative, Philip-Lorca diCorcia creates extraordinary images.
Whether photographing pedestrians on city streets, exotic dancers on stripper poles, or hustlers in parking lots and seedy motel rooms, diCorcia always captures a sense of drama in his photographs. Fittingly, in the realm of fashion, his visual storytelling takes the focus off the clothes in favor of portraying certain lifestyles.
