In a digital world with everyone becoming a creative, we may be blind to authentic talent when presented to us. Social media outlets such as Tumblr and Instagram allow us to see the works of a plethora of creators – like Brooklyn-based photographer and videographer, Andre Uncut.
The 22-year-old Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York native, (though seasoned with editing/screenwriting from previous studies) had no intentions of becoming a photographer. In an attempt to occupy his time post break-up with an old girlfriend, Andre gave his dust collecting camera a second glance.
Going forward, he’d use the vibe and aesthetic of vintage black music videos to fuel his creativity. He is recognized for his late 90’s/early 2000’s photo feels but manages to remain relevant, new, and inspirational to other creatives. He is looking at finishing up school at Kingborough Community College, having studied Media/Broadcasting. He shared that although college is great for a scholarly foundation, he feels as though he techniques were self-taught and he probably could have gone without it.
