Dominic Episcopo is an internationally recognized artist and pioneer of the food and lifestyle photography movement. His career spans over 20 years of commercial and editorial experience, referencing everything from early movements in European fine art to the irreverent elegance of the everyday. His versatile and wide ranging portfolio encompasses everything from corporate advertising campaigns and commercial pharmaceutical sectors, to food and lifestyle editorial, high fashion and low-fi indie musicians.
The edgy rock and roll imagery of the 60s and 70s were catalytic for Dominic as he pursued his career. Originally from north New Jersey, Dom relocated to Philadelphia to pursue a degree in photography from University of the Arts, where he is both an alumni and former faculty member.
His work has been featured in a variety of national magazines and campaigns, as well as numerous galleries and private collections of notable contemporary collectors. Dominic is a member of the Board of Trustees for the PPAC-- the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center; his photography is also a part of the Permanent Collection of The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Dominic and his family currently reside in the vibrant Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. Their home and studio is housed in a smartly renovated, historic church which was outfitted in 2011 with solar panels, making it one of the oldest "green" structures in the USA.
He currently works and travels everywhere.
