Steve Koss

Photography became important to me while documenting my life living overseas, stationed with the Air Force in Okinawa, Japan.  I returned to the United States and two weeks later was involved in a severe car crash that allowed me a lot of time to think about my future. I chose to continue photography full time, and am currently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree at College for Creative Studies in Detroit.. While my work may vary in medium, and approach, social criticism dealing with American culture is a common thread that runs through my work.

'No Time to Worry'

Koss’s series, on 35mm and 4x5" black and white film, shows diverse Detroiters at nightclubs around the city. He says, “When times are bad for a city, people go to a bar. When times are good for a city, people still go to a bar. I want to see what people make up places and why they come to these places. All these places give Detroiters something different."
