Monica Agosta: Love at First Light
The best way to describe Monica Agosta's photography is love at first sight - whether it was the first time she saw an Ansel Adams image or the excitement she felt when she received her first camera for free after mailing in several Bazooka gum wrappers at age eight - love is infused in her artistry.
Agosta worked as a photo assistant for the Associated Press in Manhattan during the news service's 150th anniversary in 1998. She also served as a photo assistant at Gannett's Journal News, during it's "birth" that same year, and had some of her work published weekly in the gardening section of the paper. In 1991, she interned at Eyewitness News, WABC-TV on the assignment desk and learned the video production process, skills that added to the depth of her photography.
Agosta received her degree in Radio/Television production at the State University of New York at New Paltz in 1991
