From observing Franz Grainer (1920’s) and Man Ray (1930’s) work we drew inspiration for displaying the female body in a way that is intimate and raw. These are untouched.
The body speaks for itself. The most humane part of ourselves that is looked down upon on the outside world.
This is the female body. An homage to us.
Special thanks to our beautiful model, Ashira Mayers, for posing.
Photographer & Art Director: Culture Face
In the Summer of 2018, I traveled to several provinces (Azua and Barahona) in the Dominican Republic capturing the land, the people, and most importantly the culture.
I was able to come across families selling fruits and vegetables. Families with stories and drive that perhaps you hadn’t seen before. This land, fills me with happiness. Here are some of the pieces we were able to capture.
The female body is a work of art. This is part ii of a series we created highlighting the raw and naturalness beauty of the female body.
Completely untouched, as the body is perfect the way it.
Special thanks to our model Bryanna Grant for posing so gracefully.
La Duarte is a very well known avenue among Dominicans where you can find thrift stores (known as Paca), hair stores, fresh produce, electronics, and many more different things. I decided to capture this avenue because it’s part of the Dominican culture. A never ending story book.
The colonial zone in Santo Domingo is a historic neighborhood and it’s known as the oldest permanent European settlement of the Americas. The first settlement occurred in 1502 by Bartoleme de las Casas. In Spanish it’s called “Zona Colonial”, or as the local Dominicans call it “La Zona.”
La Zona is our personal favorite spot in the Dominican Republic. We go back every year to capture its essence. Though at first it was a neighborhood utilized by the colonizers, it has now been taken back by Dominicans displaying it’s true natural culture.
We travelled to Constanza, Dominican Republic to capture the people and it’s natural beauty. We heard Constanza is referred to as the “Switzerland of the Caribbean” for it’s mountains and chilly weather, which is not usual for the Caribbean island.
We took about 500 pictures which we all loved so figuring out which ones to put here for you to enjoy was tortuous but we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Beautiful humans, beautiful provincia.

As a New Yorker, the city and the people are a source of constant inspiration. In this city we get to see cultures from all around the world and all sorts of subcultures as well.
The Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens are all unique in their own ways.
From portraits, to landscape, this is New York
We were asked and had the pleasure to photograph the backstage and runway for NYC’s local fashion brand PBZNYC at the Brooklyn Museum for LGBTQIA+ Teen Night.
These opportunities to be able to capture for local artists is some of our favorite projects. These are all handmade pieces by a Black women. It’s important to support the local arts, as they are the true essence of creativity. Striving from nothing, we locals endure and surpass every barrier.

Herrera is a town is Santo Domingo West, Dominican Republic. It’s looked as a dangerous, “bad” side of town but we decided to capture how the people live in here. The true essence.
This is our dear friend Amina Sabree.
We went to the Higüero in Santo Domingo to capture the animals, living environment, and some of the humans of this area.
The world is so beautiful yet we humans find a way to tarnish it every day. We hope these pictures encourage you to take care of Pachamama and our dear animals.
In our journey as an artist, we have found a love incorporating photography and graphic design. This a collection of said works. Playing with dimensions, colors, and textures it transcends and redefines a photo.
We took a trip to Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic in June 2019 as a little vacation and decided to capture along the way. Here you can see El Salto de Baiguate and the town of Jarabacoa which gave us an odd melancholic feeling. Nonetheless, beautiful as ever.
We also create artworks for artists to use as album covers. Here are some of our creations.

Here’s a collection of pictures that don’t belong to a particular series but that have caught our eye due to the simplicity, or beauty it holds.
A self portrait series that was also part of our nude mini series. To capture nude, is to be vulnerable in front of the lens. So here we are.
