SIX by Kevin Morosky

On Wednesday night Bloomsbury's Orange Dot Gallery opened its doors to all sorts of wonderful and talented people for Kevin Morosky's (above) photography private view. He's been making quite a name for himself recently, with an awesome interview up on Dazed Digital and a beautiful collection of photos. In fact, when he showed us the back catalogue, a ridiculous amount of photos.

Morosky was kind enough to chat directly to us about the project, filling us in on how he uses his friends as inspiration, never likes to shoot a staged picture and works almost exclusively with film. He's always got a little camera to hand, saying how his friends used to find the lens intrusive "but now they're just used to having it around all the time". We love how his un-touched photos look like what Hispatamic users wish they could create organically. It takes real skill to manipulate light and film as he does, and we give him props for that.

Special guest Marques Toliver (above) went on to play a set for the other attendees at the exhibition launch, and he's also one to watch this year. SIX by Kevin Morosky runs at the Orange Dot Gallery until Thursday June 30th, so do check it out. There are several beautifully captured moments to see. Big thanks to everyone at Orange Dot, Morosky and Toliver for being so lovely to us.
