Photographer / Photojournalist and Curator
Osceola Refetoff is a fine art photographer and photojournalist interested in documenting humanity’s impact on the world, both the intersection of nature and industry, and the narratives of the people living at those crossroads. A graduate of NYU Graduate Film Program, his work is characterized by an evocative, cinematic understanding of how scale, point of view, architecture, and motion can express the essence of a given time and place within the confines of a single exposure.
Refetoff’s ongoing photographer/writer collaboration “High & Dry” explores the effects of human activity in the California desert. The project is syndicated on KCET/PBS SoCal’s Artbound, receiving the Photojournalist of the Year prize from the Los Angeles Press Club. “Kinematic Exposures,” a solo exhibit of new pinhole images from Antarctica will be on view at Von Lintel Gallery in Los Angeles this fall.
