Experimenting with a range of motifs in his images, award-winning American photographer John Cyr has perfected the art of framing an ideal composition.
Using his lens to tap into the overlooked or peripheral elements of modern existence, Cyr compels the viewers of his works to look deeper into each composition to study both their figures and forms. By doing so, Cyr adds remarkable depth to his work.
Based in New York, Cyr earned his BA from Connecticut College and then completed his MFA in 2010 from the School of the Visual Arts. His award-wining works have won him accolades such as the Aaron Siskin Fellowship (2009) and the Anthony Bannon’s Juror’s Choice Award (2011). He currently teaches at Suffolk County Community College. In addition to the feature of his work in numerous important publications such as ARTnews and Time, his work is included among famous collections, including the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and the New York Public Library.
