The closing reception for CHAMBERS was, hands down, one of the best closing receptions that I’ve had the pleasure of being apart of and most definitely ended our exhibition in proper form. The Instant Vintage vinyl record fair, featuring some of the areas finest vinyl record collectors, and producer showcase, featuring some DC’s most notable beat-smiths making Wu-Tang inspired beats, served as perfect complements to what many guests considered as a more than memorable night. Thank you to everyone who attended, salute to all of those that helped spread the word, and props to our partners at ART WHINO and BLIND WHINO for helping to make this happen. Stay tuned for more is all I’m gonna say…

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
