Olivia Bee is gritty, grungy, out of focus, a teenager and the next big Hollywood photographer.
Her clients include Converse, Hermes, Adidas, Fiat and Nike. She’s done editorials for Time Magazine and The New York Times.
They’re the kind of photos you look at and think, but I could have taken that. Like when you walk through an art gallery and you can’t help but compare them to your kindergarten scribbles, that don’t look dissimilar to the canvases on the wall.
And yet, there is something about her photographs that haunt you. The blurred faces with eyes that grind into your soul. The gritty landscapes that are breathtaking, in both beauty and eeriness.
She’s only nineteen but her images reveal the soul of a hard-lived life.
