Marco Buonocore

Marco Buonocore is a self-taught photographer and printer whose work is motivated by images that explore the everyday built environment of our cities and neighborhoods.

Buonocore embraces traditional, outmoded techniques. Working exclusively with analog photography disciplines, his photographs are taken on film, processed by hand, and created in a wet darkroom. Exploring the limits of silver gelatin materials and expired photographic papers, he creates unique prints with finishes, textures and qualities that are no longer commercially produced. 

Alongside his personal artistic practice, Buonocore offers custom black-and-white printing for individuals, artists, galleries and institutions. He has also shared his knowledge with one-on-one and group workshops and numerous youth groups in the local area. He is currently based in Hamilton, ON.
