Sebastian SmithSebastian Smith
Age: 37
Location: Los Angeles, CA

Sebastian Smith was born in the back seat of a Cadillac, in Biloxi, Mississippi. Devoting his adolescence to drag racing, dare devil stunts and petty theft, he left home at sixteen and took a job as an elephant trainer in Delhi. After achieving the distinct honor of blessing the sacred royal herd in the Ganges River, he roamed the world, taking a variety of jobs. He was a bullfighter in Spain, a cigar tester in Cuba and a fortune cookie writer in Beijing. He is anywhere and everywhere. This international man of travel and imagery is perhaps even in your backyard, at this very moment, drinking your whiskey, grilling up T-Bone steaks and lobster tails, in anticipation of your return home. In a non-creepy kind of way, of course. View More »

Melissa GoldenMelissa Golden
Age: 28
Location: Washington, D.C.

Melissa Golden lives in the DC metro area, but she isn’t really from anywhere in particular. Her nomadic childhood, courtesy of the United States military, has led to a life marked by continuous change, renewal and wanderlust. Her work is influenced by all the places she’s called home at some point- the brazen oddity and beauty of Southern California, the tradition of the Deep South, the storm light of rural Florida, the heady intrigue of the Middle East and the stiff formality of the District of Columbia. She may not know where she’s going next, but her pictures help her to keep track of where she’s been. She is a contributing photographer with Redux Pictures. View More »
