A renowned New York City-based photographer, filmmaker and self-professed “pop-culture junkie,” Owerko’s editorial and fine art projects regularly take the globe-trotting artist to Africa, Japan, Europe and South America. His heart-wrenching editorial photograph of the Sept. 11th, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center appeared on the cover of TIME magazine and was called one of the 40 most important magazine covers in the last 40 years by the American Society of Magazine Editors. His film credits include music videos for Rufus Wainwright and American Hi-Fi and commercial spots with Robert Redford for The Sundance Channel. His work has been featured in Communication Arts magazine, The New York Times, The Village Voice, New York magazine, The London Times, BlackBook, Vanity Fair etc... including broadcast and radio interviews on NPR, CBS Sunday Morning and ABC Nightline, as well as Canada’s CTV, CBC and Global networks (along with extensive coverage on the venerable BBC in England). His journals have been included alongside those of director Mike Figgis and musician David Byrne in the 2005 Princeton Architectural Press book 'Drawing From Life'.
