Constance Kostrevski has been taking photographs since the age of eight when she received her first camera from her grandmother. Photography was a family affair; her grandfather was a portrait photographer back in Macedonia. Fascinated by her family’s history and culture, Kostrevski began by taking portraits of her grandmother after school, taking the time to choose her outfits and adjust the setting and lighting, she soon fell into the role of photographer and stylist.
It was her interest in fashion from styling these shoots that inspired her to study fashion merchandising and marketing, earning a BA from the Illinois Institute of Art, Chicago. She also holds a certificate in photography from The School of Visual Arts, New York.
Kostrevski lives and works in Chicago, finding inspiration in many places: her vibrant neighborhood of Pilsen, friends, travels, architecture, nature, and music. An adept portrait photographer, Kostrevski’s ability to connect with her subjects allows her to not only capture a portrait but also to tell a story. She has defined herself through the people she shoots, allowing her portraits to show that everyone has a story to share.
She has worked with many artists and musicians, including comedian Hannibal Buress on My Name Is Hannibal and Live From Chicago, musician Radius on his album Neighborhood Suicide, as well as with musical group, The Cool Kids, included in the “Next 1000” issue for URB magazine. Her work has been featured in print and digital publications, including the Chicago Reader, Chicago magazine, i-D magazine, Time Out Chicago, XLR8R, Pitchfork, and Getty images.
