Craig Semetko, born 1961 in Detroit, works and lives in Los Angeles. Semetko became a comedy writer and performer after graduating from Northwestern University and discovered photography as another means of storytelling while performing in a show that took him around the world. His comedic background has given him a highly developed sense of the absurd and ironic, resulting in a strong theme of humor throughout his work. In 2014 Semetko was chosen by Leica Camera as one of 10 photographers worldwide to be part of its “10×10” exhibition celebrating 100 years of Leica photography. He has taught Leica Master Class workshops in NYC, Los Angeles, London, Milan, Miami, Frankfurt, Singapore and St. Moritz, and has taught other workshops in Canada, the United States, and India. His second book, “INDIA UNPOSED,” was published by StreetView Press and released in the spring of 20014. Exhibitions: Open Shutter Gallery in Durango, CO., in an exhibition entitled, “Street Photography: From Classic to Contemporary—Henri Cartier-Bresson and Craig Semetko,” and he’s had solo exhibitions at the Leica Galleries in Los Angeles, NYC, Salzburg, Frankfurt, Washington, D.C., Singapore, Miami, the Vadehra Art Gallery in Delhi, and the Robert Anderson Gallery in NYC. His photographs have been published worldwide and his work can be found in private collections in Asia, Europe, and the United States.
