Edward Garou

Edward “Garou”, as he is known by his friends, is a New York based photographer and artist who is actively involved in a number of charities.

In addition to shooting fashion, event and art photography with modern digital cameras and equipment, he is also an avid Lomographer, and is quite comfortable using cameras like the Diana F+ and antique TLRs. He even develops his own film in order to be fully hands-on in the process of creating his artistic vision.

His artistic influences range from his primary inspiration, Henri Cartier-Bresson and the “Decisive Moment”, to the Japanese concepts of Wabi-Sabi and the intensity of Le Theatre du Grand-Guignol.

In addition to his charity work, Edward has also been a member of two high I.Q. societies (Mensa and Interel), and holds a Masters of Science in Organizational Behavior.

He was born in Brazil, adopted, raised in Queens, went to college in Manhattan, grad school in Brooklyn, and is now residing in an unusual part of the Bronx. Needless to say, his dedication to New York is solid! Although well traveled, having been to Greece, Paris, Italy, Brussels, Britain, Austria, Hungary, Spain and the Czech Republic, among other places, he nonetheless concludes each time that, although beautiful, “it’s simply not New York.”
