DAVID FOKOS’ SERENE IMAGES ASK VIEWERS TO
FOCUS WITH MORE THAN THEIR EYES.
By Paul Slaughter
When David Fokos takes a photo, his goal is to create the feeling he wants the viewer to experience; the objects in his images are simply devices to stir up specific emotions. “With my work, I am not trying to show the viewer what these places look like, but
rather what they feel like. It is my hope that, looking at my work, you may viscerally share with
me the experience of these places,” he says.
