Photographer #228: Victor Cobo

Victor Cobo, 1971, USA, is a self-taught photographer who lives and works in New York City. In 1999 he was fired from his first job after college after being caught with inappropriate photographs he had taken on the streets. That's when he began focusing on the margins of society. Cobo functions as both the choreographer and the actor in his images. His subjects, the "renegades, outsiders and survivors," are his reflections and companions in his photographic diaries. In this way his photographs are just as much about himself as they are of his subjects. Victor's work has been featured in numerous magazines an has been exhibited internationally. The following images come from the series Remember when you loved me, The face forgives the Mirror and Down in the Hole.
