“Morosky’s images are something special” Nicola Formichetti
Is the six degrees of separation theory the key to making this world a better place?
“Yes, maybe, I’d like to think so,” says Kevin Morosky. “The idea that we are so closely connected is one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard. I love the idea that we are all equal, we just have different lives.” Once we remind ourselves of this, how can the world not be perceived and feel like it's a better place?
“I myself do float between different circles,” continues Morosky, “but I have never looked at these circles as dynamics that separate us, more as clogs that turn the circle closest to it. These relationships and their differences can give birth to motivation and spark a personal journey to a new existence. We all need each other in one way or another.”
Morosky is a point and shoot photographer working on 35-mm, in the realm of documentary and reportage. He has most recently been working with a range of artists, from musicians such as Jack Penate, Ghostpoet, Marques Toliver and Jessie Wares, to sculptor Andrew Logan, playwright Polly Sternham, and actresses Mischa Barton, Billie Piper and Ashley Madekwe.
He has shot for titles including Dazed Digital, Vice, Attitude, The Super Super, Oh Comely, Volume and RWD.
Big influences are Nan Golding, Terry Richardson, Robert Frank and the Notorious B.I.G, and he has further solo exhibitions in London and New York lined up for later this year.
In addition to his photography work, Morosky runs Dalston-dwelling club night Bounty, through which he has hosted parties for Diplo and Buraka Som Sistema, amongst others.
The Orange Dot Gallery is located in Bloomsbury. Behind the huge windows and bleached white wooden walls, their aim is to showcase exciting new works at the cutting edge of originality. Over the last year, the gallery has showcased the likes of Michael De Feo, Stephen King and the Hipstamatics project, which was widely applauded for its innovation, being the first exhibit of its kind in Europe.
