BKC Student Spotlight: Gloria Cook


Inspired by her local produce section and the still life work of a Brooklyn artist she had admired, BKC student and photographer, Gloria Cook followed her inspiration and ended up making some amazing images of her own.

“I thought about shooting stills every time I was distracted by the unique textures of exotic fruits in the produce section,” explains Cook, who typically shoots lifestyle and fashion portraiture.

The tantalizing photo series was produced for our Embrace Your Curiosity class taught by Sally Bozzuto which challenged students to dig deep, embrace their fears, vulnerabilities and try something new through visual art. The work culminated in a wonderful group show and we are happy to share this stunning work that Gloria had contributed to it.
