Joe Ligammari – Fine Art Photographer

My passion is people, landscape and cityscape photography. I strive to create images that evoke wonder, amusement, compassion, joy, mystery or the unthinkable. One that sheds new light on our world, raises questions about our world, or creates a new world. My images encompass “straight ahead” and artistic photography.

Who is Joe New York?


I am Joe Ligammari (aka Joe New York), a  professional Fine Art Photographer and Artist, living in Brooklyn NY. My career spans over 25 years. I started  shooting black and white film and developing fine art prints in Joe Ligammari Photographymy parents basement/darkroom. At the time, I worked with a 35mm Nikon FE2 and medium format Hasselblad 500C/M. Today I shoot digital format, using Nikon and Elinchrom studio lighting equipment. I still take out the Hasselblad to enjoy shooting film.

Another passion of mine is Street Photography. Many of my street photography images are posted to Instagram.

I have studied Photography at the School of Visual Arts and Cooper Union in New York City.

In addition, I am a NY Licensed Professional Engineer, with degrees in Chemical Engineering and Economics from New York University.

Today, my fine art photography is being displayed in homes and buildings throughout the United States.
