Award-winning photographer. Filmmaker. Writer. Raised in New Orleans. Based in NYC. Available for commissions and exhibitions internationally.
I mix art and fashion with technology. Kanye West loved my fashion story about black skinheads. I’m the guy behind those Hysterical Literature videos. I get zef with Die Antwoord. My Long Portraits inspired a Superbowl commercial. I got dirty during Hurricane Katrina. I think subculture is culture. I think deeply about how the present creates the future.
My dad was a Canadian national running pot over the border from Mexico. My mom was a Cajun hippie runaway, go-go dancing on Bourbon Street. They met, married, and went on a lifelong road trip, conceiving me in the back of a VW van on the way.
