Artist Decoded by Yoshino

"I started this series as a means for exploration, an exploration of self and an exploration of the perspectives of other artists. This series is an unabridged documentation of conversations between artists. It’s a series dedicated to breaking down the barriers we tend to set up in our own mind. I want to inspire future creatives to have the courage to explore and experiment. This is about making dreams a reality and not about letting our dreams fall to the wayside. My intention is to give my audience a sense of real human connection, something that feels rich and organic. When I was thinking of a title I thought of the word “movement”. In relation to the Renaissance period in art, my goal for this program is to signify a rebirth of consciousness towards the way we look at contemporary art." - Yoshino

With a body of work spanning fashion photograph, art, and film, Byron Spencer's origins in these fields began through experimentations in documenting the styles and eccentricities of the world around him. This led to his own fashion columns at the Sun Herald and Grazia Magazine. 

Transitioning into fashion photography, his highly visual and playful work has lent imagery to publications such as Vogue Italia, Dazed and Confused, i-D Magazine and many more.

Byron's advertisement campaigns include ASOS, Top Shop, Pierre Cardin, etc.

His work now expands itself into the realm of film and music, again experimenting and following an intuition that pushes his techniques and inspirations to create original and vibrant content.
