Read on to learn more about some of the amazing artists whose work will be featured.

    Madison Nunes
    Madison Nunes is a queer, femme multi-media artist and fashion photographer. Originally from Atlanta, Madison moved to New York in 2014 to accrue an education at the School of Visual Arts. Unsatisfied with the trendy fetishization of lower class characteristics in pop culture, Nunes turned to bringing marginalized individuals into her lens’s spotlight in hopes of diversifying the fashion industry. With her subjects she works to build a collaborative space for both she and them to be influential and inspirational. This space usually features bright colors and patterns, witty banter, and the occasional cult-movie reference. 

    Micaiah Carter
    Micaiah Carter (b. 1995, Southern California) is a photographer who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He is interested in creating images that capture the beauty of blackness that bends the African diaspora together. He creates images that compel black stories, cultures and 'stereotypes' in moods and environments that are unworldly. The perspective he's bringing isn't denouncing the stereotype it's embracing it and making it culturally accepted in his own words.

    Lindsay Crowder
    Lindsay is a Brooklyn based photographer, relocated from San Francisco. She communicates her deep appreciation and reverence to the natural world through her imagery, reminding the viewer that we are not separate from it. Aside from photography, she has run a handful of progressive campaigns...from protecting the Arctic Wildlife Refuge from oil drilling, working on numerous protections for the LGBTQ community, regulating fresh water usage in the Great Lakes, to mobilizing thousands of new voters during election season. She can also make a delicious cup of coffee, teach French, or help with most things child related. Lindsay lives in Park Slope, Brooklyn with her wife, 3 cats and a bird. And! She was born in Michigan and loves hip hop.

    Chris Kennedy
    Chris Kennedy is a female artist/curator living and working as a lifestyle photographer in New York. She started shooting with disposable cameras in high school. Chris is inspired by the need to feel. Her work plays with emotions and the ups & downs of everyday life. The photos she takes are snapshots of people in their natural state, doing as they do with little direction usually shot with film. 

    Crybaby is a continuing video project Chris has been shooting since 2010. She recently gave a lecture at Apple based on the portraiture and emotional inspiration based around this piece.Chris was an art director for New York Art Department where she opened The Hole Shop alongside The Hole Gallery curating art events, producing books & shows with artist Baron Von Fancy, Maggie Lee,Jjim Joe, Andre Saraiva and many others until they close their doors. Chris then realized her main focus need be on her own art and photography, she continued shooting for brands like Nike, Coach, Milk, Standard Culture as well as musicians like Redman, Sky Ferreira, & Dev Hynes. 

    Monet Lucki
    Monet Lucki graduated from Parsons the New School of Design with a BFA in Photography and currently resides in Brooklyn, New York. Her work transitions from fashion photography to personal work involving intimate portraits and scenery. Her photographs have been featured in publications such as Editorial Magazine, Vogue, T Magazine, Forbes, and Milk. When she is not photographing she spends her time scouting future subjects, consuming art and sound, exploring unknown places, and studying international cultures, advancements in technology, and the human form. 

    Joe Pinto
    I’ve loved taking photos for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid I would make my little brother & sister put on weird outfits, monster fangs and cover them with fake blood to take pics. Yes, I know, I was a weird kid lolz. But I always look back on those times and think about how I never really stopped being that weird kid. I like to think that my photos give a glimpse into the strange world that I live in.
