Steven Goossen is an American photographer, musician and film maker whose style has been described as “moody” and “surreal”.
Steven earned a Bachelor Degree in Telecommunications and Film in 1995 from Eastern Michigan University with a concentration in cinema and aesthetic philosophy. During his time Eastern Michigan University, Steven was awarded a presentation at The Undergraduate Student Symposium, an event honoring excellence in research and study, of a film made as an independent study. Of the film, which was a cinematic adaptation of Emily Dickinson’s poem ‘I Heard A Fly’, Professor Emeritus John Cooper stated the piece could stand alone as a Masters thesis at NYU.
