Thomas J. Giarraffa


Thomas Giarraffa started his photo career when he was just a child. Born and raised in Staten Island, he began shooting when he was accepted into Mark Twain's Gifted and Talented for Art and Media. Before leaving the school, he left them with a national and 2 state awards to remember him by, one of which being displayed in the Metropolitan Museum of Art 

   In high-school, he continued his passion for visual arts, rather than photography. His last year of high-school, he decided he was ready to go back to Photography, now wining two more awards. He was later accepted into New York's Fashion Institute of Technology.

   Now on the road to his Master's in Photography, Thomas is out in the world making art of all kinds, from surreal environmental portraits, to commercial work. His personal works consist of cinematic productions telling nostalgic stories from stories heard and his personal past. With show appearances, such as Alice Austen’s 2nd Triennial Gala, Thomas continues to show his progression towards a successful artist.
