Two brothers separated by the Atlantic ocean. One lives in the USA, the other in The Netherlands, their motherland. Solon is a fleeting and intimate documentation of their relationship. Ari Marcopoulos (born 1957) is an Amsterdam-born photographer and filmmaker, living and working in New York and California. As a photographer, film artist and adventurist, Marcopoulos – who began his career in New York City assisting Andy Warhol – transplants himself into the intimate lives of people living on the edge. Artists, snowboarders, musicians and skateboarders have been both muses and commercial subject-matter throughout his quarter-century career as a photographer. His stunning landscapes and playful portraiture offer a dramatic take on every day life, and a glimpse into all things awesome. Thanks to Nieves (Zurich).
