Niccolo Cosme's Catholic Inspired Imagery Promotes End of AIDS
ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
NEW YORK---Niccolo Cosme, a 30-something Filipino fashion and commercial photographer is coming to America blending Christian iconography with the issues of HIV/AIDS in what we at A&O believe to be the single most exciting photo exhibition of this summer. Winner of the 2011 Asia Pacific District Photographic Competition of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), his work has been described by A&O readers, as "electrifying" and it is certain to provoke some conversations during this heated political season, but that's exactly what religious artists should be doing anyway---right? While Cosme doesn't claim to be a "religious artist", we still claim him as one of our own. The exhibition entitled, "Resplendor: The Blinding Light" opens in San Francisco on August 15 before heading to New York City on August 31, 2012.
