Alexander Eros Rocco is an award-winning photographer and visual artist, born in Santiago Chile and based in Toronto, Canada. At an early age he attended classes at the Art Gallery of Ontario to build creative thinking and experiment with a variety of mediums. The family’s Minolta camera was the start of a love affair with black and white photography. However, his creative calling and art passion started several years after he finished his science degree at the University of Waterloo.
Rocco has been influenced by the old masters of the 1920s and 30s who used strong shadows and unusual angles to highlight subjects. The minimalistic approach or construction using simple angles and strong light evoke moods which give the final image a sense of beauty. His fashion Mode Shape Plate collection reflects his visual reference to the great masters of the golden age of black and white photography.
Rocco has exhibited in galleries in Canada, the US, and his images have appeared in various magazines such as Black & White, and Fashion Unlimited.
