Frank Cusack

Art Director

For 44 years Frank had been an advertising art director, selling everything from pantyhose to jet planes and pharmaceuticals. To make his ideas come to life, he shot with some of the best photographers in the country. For the last ten of those years he have been an occasional shooter.

His still-life work since 2013 focuses on everyday objects. Frak strips away extraneous information about the subject and challenges the viewer to take a second look. The best results combine the abstract and the recognizable.

Frank has had a fear of doing portraits, but to conquer that he looks for that moment of “actuality”, when people stop posing for the camera, and begin engaging with him or their surroundings. “That’s the magic moment” he says

He continues to work with special clients for design projects (like “Walter’s Way).
