ARTIST

Bill Costa was born in Fall River, Massachusetts, and raised in Gloucester, Massachusetts—an important fishing port and artist colony. He showed artistic promise at an early age and studied drawing with a local artist and then at the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. He turned to photography after leaving a successful corporate career, and had his first show in New York City in 1975. Costa’s photographs have been featured in many magazines, and he has mounted numerous exhibitions across the United States and Europe.
