PHOTOGENICS Art Book Vol.2 Release Party + Group Exhibition

Wow, what a whirlwind these past couple weeks have been leading up to such an incredible night.  On March 14th, 2015 we celebrated the release of our 2nd annual Art Book including PhotogenicsMAG Art Book Issue No.11.  It was our first time doing a pop up gallery Group Exhibition featuring the work of contributing artists, and I can proudly say that it won’t be our last.  AND having Steve Lee and Clinton Van Arnam DJ’ing plus a live set by my good friends The Buttertones was such an honor. THANKS, GUYS!

Fashion + Art + Music … A fucking fantastic night.  Thanks to everyone involved!

If you haven’t already checked out our newest issue, you should do it…like RIGHT NOW.  We’re about to take off until the new year, but in the meantime enjoy this menacing video editorial we shot in Brooklyn for a brand collaboration with LA-based men’s designer Chapter.

It’s the end of the year, and we’re celebrating tonight with the launch of our very first Art Book and the grand opening of our new space.  Each release is another milestone that marks the journey of Photogenics…where we came from, where we are now, and the endless possibilities to come.  The way we see it, the sky’s the limit.  Thank you to everyone who has contributed to what we feel is what makes us who we are.  These creative projects are nothing without you.  Much love from all of us at Photogenics.

PhotogenicsMAG Issue No. 6


Kablaaahw!!! Dropping the 6th issue feels so good, you guys, but I also feel like I just birthed a child.  Again, a big high five and sincerest gratitude to everyone who contributed.  I’m stoked to have you all as colleagues and homies.

For all you Spotifiers, I made a quick playlist of all the tunes I was listening to while laying out this issue.  You can find me under Melanie deJesus and the playlist is called PhotogenicsMAG Issue No.6.  And if you’re not already on Spotify, you should be.  For real.  It’s EVERYTHING.

To everyone who follows Photogenics, have a bitchin’ end of the summer and get ready for our fall issue.  Lots of surprises to come.  – M-
