Dario Calmese is an artist working in photography whose practice includes live performance, video, and text. He received his master’s in Photography from School of Visual Arts and his bachelors in Psychology at Rockhurst University in Kansas City. Classically trained in the performing arts, his photography is rooted in the Theater of the Anthropocene; at times focused on it’s players, at other times contemplating the set and costumes, but continually pushing beyond the proscenium arch and shattering the fourth wall to interrogate the justice and aftermath of the scene.
Selected clients include Public School, Pyer Moss, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Grey Ant, The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), The Plaza Hotel, New York University, Restoration Hardware, Salt Magazine.
