Glen Wexler is a photographer and director best known for his elaborately staged digital photocompositions of improbable situations.
At 22 years old Wexler photographed his first album cover for Quincy Jones Production while a student at Art Center College of Design. He quickly gained a reputation for the imaginative photo illustrations he created for Michael Jackson, Van Halen, Rush, Black Sabbath, Yes, ZZ Top and many others. Nowadays his clients include Epson, Acura, Sony, Jeep, Maxell, Adobe, Intel, Coca-Cola, Capital One, Toyota, Pepsi, Warner Brothers Pictures and hundreds of others.
Internationally recognized as one of the original artists to incorporate digital imaging technology into the creative process, Wexler is widely regarded as a leader in the field. Perhaps this is why Nokia saw him as the perfect fit for their Ozo ad campaign.
Ozo is the name of Nokia’s stereoscopic 360-degree 3D camera and the titular name of the hardware and software that can accompany the camera. Wexler’s long-time immersion in the digital imaging community made him the perfect person to show off this new technology. He did individual campaigns for OZO VR Production, OZO Live Broadcast and OZO 360º Spatial Audio. You can see highlights from all three campaigns below.
