On the Spot: RJ Russo

by Chiara Costantino

RJ Russo is 27 year old creative enthusiast born in Staten Island, New York and raised in New Jersey. He did his bachelors in studio art where he took his first course in digital photography. After undergrad he went on to gain his master’s in graphic communications by age 23. RJ appreciates creating using many art mediums, however, photography has become one of his stronger passions over time. For the most part, RJ pretty much categorizes himself as a self taught loner learning through his life experiences. This series of his photography work comes from his exploring of several connected local beach towns that make up Long Beach Island, NJ, located only several miles from where he currently resides. He has always been fascinated by the beach, the ocean, sea life, coastal culture, as well as positive new experiences. Currently, RJ has become highly involved in producing giclee and archival quality inkjet prints of both his own work as well as of the works of other fine artists and photographers within the US.

RJ Russo è un ventisettenne fanatico creativo, nato a Staten Island (New York) e cresciuto nel New Jersey. Si è laureato in arti visive, e così ha avuto modo di frequentare il primo corso di fotografia digitale.  Dopo la laurea di primo livello, ha proseguito per specializzarsi in comunicazioni grafiche dall’età di 23 anni. RJ ama creare usando diverse forme d’arte, comunque la fotografia è diventata nel corso del tempo una delle sue più grandi passioni. Per la maggior parte, RJ si considera come un autodidatta solitario che impara attraverso le sue esperienze di vita. Questa serie, tratta dal suo lavoro fotografico, nasce dalla sua esplorazione di diverse città di mare locali e vicine l’una all’altra che compongono Long Beach Island (New Jersey), situate a solo poche miglia di distanza da dove risiede attualmente. E’ stato sempre affascinato dalla spiaggia, dall’oceano, dalla vita di mare, dalla cultura costiera, così come dalle nuove esperienze positive. Al momento, RJ è molto impegnato nel produrre giclee e stampe a getto d’inchiostro di qualità archivistica sia del suo stesso lavoro, sia dei lavori di altri artisti e fotografi statunitensi.
