MEET THE ARTISTS:

Andre L. Perry

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP: I’m from West Philadelphia born and raised…you know the rest!

WHEN DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY: I became interested in photography after seeing the movie Love Jones in 1997 with Larenz Tate and Nia Long. I immediately became obsessed with the world of photography, poetry, and jazz. Ultimately I wanted to be a Renaissance man just like Larenz Tate’s character Darius Lovehall.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU: That’s a tough question because I can literally find inspiration in everything -  from visiting my neighborhood bodega, to riding the train and people watching in Soho or Williamsburg.

MEET THE ARTISTS:

Adi Goodrich

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP:  I grew up in a small town called Momence, Illinois and then we moved to Chicago when I was 17.

Momence is the quintessential small town. It had one tiny grocery store in town, a small town newspaper and a ‘main street’ that was a constant flow of 16-year-old dudes cruising back and forth with their windows down looking for.. I don’t know what, trouble, their soon-to-be-wives? The town itself is a square mile in size and surrounded by 20 miles of cornfields. Chicago, obviously, is the complete opposite. I owe my not knowing anything about pop culture to the cornfields around our house - though I’m not that

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP: My family moved to the US when I was 4. We lived in Houston, TX until I was 13 and then we moved to Miami, FL. I claim Miami home.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU: Exploring. Feeling like I’m contributing to the greater human dialog in a small way.

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP: Texarkana, TX.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN ILLUSTRATION + DESIGN: In high school my friend Lance and I had a t-shirt “business” where we would make bootleg band t-shirts with X-Acto stencils and fabric blow-pens (no one told us about screen printing in East Texas). I took two art classes, one in 8th grade and one in 9th grade, but my first notable experience came when I was in undergrad at Mississippi State. Kate Bingaman-Burt was my professor and she changed my world. She’s now one of my best friends, a studiomate for almost 10 years, and I was able to teach alongside her at Portland State University.

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP:  Born and raised in Redondo Beach, CA.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY:  My pops was a big photography enthusiast and he always had the latest and greatest photo technology. He was constantly making images and had a lot of fun doing so. That quickly grabbed my interest and finally, when I was old enough (in his eyes), I got to play with one of his fancy cameras.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU:  I surround myself with a lot of talented people. Their amazing skills range from: photography, illustration, design, music and other forms of art. It also comes to me as experiences and brief moments I live day to day.Read more [...]

Jim Houser

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP: I grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia called Springfield, PA.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN ART: It's been there my whole life. As a kid, I discovered that thing-making contains a magical element that allows me to be still and quiet my mind. I have never not made things.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU: The beauty and brutality of nature. Language. Fatherhood and husbandhood. Music-making. Memories.

DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE PROJECT THAT YOU’VE WORKED ON: No, but any installation work in a new location is my favorite aspect. There is a combination of endless possibility and anxiety when arriving at a new sp

Michael Leon

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP: Florida and North Carolina.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN ART AND DESIGN: I always was. I can't remember when it started. In the South, county fairs are where you go to see art. I would always get blue ribbons and that kinda encouraged me to keep going with the crayons.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU: These days I'm not so much into content as I used to be. I'm getting inspired more by form, color and materials. The hands-on craft of things and 'what happens when?' experimentation. I think that's why in the last few years I only used these empty symbols like skulls, butterflies and smiley faces because I don't really car

MEET THE ARTISTS:

Benjamin Rasmussen

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP: I grew up on a tiny jungle island called Balabac in the southwest corner of the Philippines. There were no roads or electricity, but there were pet parrots and monkeys, smugglers and pirates, and lots of trees, rivers, ocean and machetes to play with. Basically, the coolest childhood a kid could ask for.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY: I first picked up a camera in high school, but I didn't really become interested in photography until my sophomore year of college. I was just scraping by as a semi-dyslexic journalism major when I watched the documentary "War Photographer" about James Nachtwey. My immediate response was

Laure Joliet

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP: I grew up in LA, specifically and most viscerally, in my grandma's backyard watering plants and helping in the garden and running around naked. But I also grew up in Paris, chasing pigeons and hanging out with my other grandmother. My grandmothers were pretty great.

My parents and I went back and forth between LA and Paris for most of my growing up (my dad is the French one) but I'm really a Californian at heart. My great-grandparents and my grandparents all built houses here; it's in my blood. But I'm grateful that along with a suburban upbringing I also got to travel a lot as a kid and see that there are lots of different ways to live yo

WHERE DID YOU GROW UP:  Rockford, IL - it's 2 hours northwest of Chicago, and it's often voted as one of the top 40 worst places to live in the country. We did however give the world Cheap Trick and the Rockford Peaches.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY:  When I was a toddler I used to build fake cameras out of duplos. I was a bit of a tomboy growing up, so I was also interested in a lot of other things - electronics, cars, trains, video cameras, dinosaurs, chemistry, and of course robots. My professional interest in photography started in high school when I was a yearbook photographer. My high school sent our yearbook team to photography camp

MEET THE ARTISTS:

Nicholas Maggio

 WHERE DID YOU GROW UP: Born in New Orleans, then Ventura, but I claim Bakersfield as the place that grew me. And yes, I said  Bakersfield.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST BECOME INTERESTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY: I started taking classes in Jr. High, so when I was 12 or so. I used to give other kids my lunch money to roll my film onto the reel in a changing bag. I hated doing that. Then I got assigned to shoot our flag football team for the yearbook. I got high-speed film and shot a bunch of grainy pictures of the clouds. Poor football team... "unpictured."

WHAT INSPIRES YOU: I can find inspiration anywhere. That sounds soooooo pretentious it's painful, b
