John-Paul Pietrus was born in the Philippines and raised in the Midwestern United States. He studied photography, film, and painting at the esteemed Minneapolis College of Art and Design before relocating to Hong Kong to pursue his photographic passions. After working for a period as a news photographer, he transitioned to fashion- a shift that eventually took him to London to focus exclusively on editorial and commercial assignments, art commissions, and filmmaking. Pietrus’ fashion photographs are characterized by vibrant and dynamic compositions that are emblematic of the creative energy of the industry, and which also hark back to his fine arts roots.

Pietrus’ work has exhibited internationally in museums including le Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, PS1-M.O.M.A. in New York, CAFA in Beijing, and the Stazione Leopolda in Florence. His commercial clients include Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Lancel, and Adidas. He has been published in international editions of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Interview, Elle, Esquire, is a regular contributor to Modern Media Group and is Editor-at-Large for 7th Man Magazine. Pietrus has received numerous awards of recognition.

Exclusively available via gallery, Modern Art Etc Los Angeles.

“I shot this series in 2008 in the dead of winter for Modern Weekly, China. It was one of the most breath-taking and beautiful places I have ever been in my life, but it was also so incredibly cold! My kudos to the wonderfully elegant model, Cici, for her strength and perseverance! One of my best friends, Tim Lim, styled the shoot. We wanted to create something very poetic and elegant and quiet.”
