The NYC opening reception of the third DOCUMENT the Fresh exhibition did not disappoint. Props to the artists for bringing their best in terms of works and solid installations, both of which spoke to their personalities and styles. Salute to everyone that attended, the Bishop Gallery for once again opening their doors to my ideas, props to Alexis (Madison Davenport PR) for the PR/marketing support, and thanks again to the participating photographers. I’m planning a closing reception/BBQ to take place later this month so stay tuned.

Who or what first got you interested in photography?
I’ve always been into creating visuals. I’ve been teaching myself photoshop since 12 years old. At about 20 years old, my close friend purchased a digital camera. I borrowed his camera whenever I wanted to shoot something but soon after, his mother felt I was borrowing it too much so I barley asked for it, which was a blessing in disguise. That’s when I had to purchase my own camera, it was a Polaroid.
Early on what were some of the first things that you began to document?
I’m a people person. Generally, healthy and organic interactions make it easier to coexist amongst others. My subjects are made up of creative individuals, all of whom are chasing a dream to create a better reality for themselves. Via photography, I’m simply assisting them on their journey but subconsciously building a body of work of my own. For the entire read click Read the rest of this entry
