About the guests

Christopher Chester is a multidisciplinary designer with a demonstrated history of working in the marketing and advertising industry. He studied graphic design at The Maryland Institute College of Art. Skilled in Identity & Print Design, Product Design, Photography, Project Management, and Communication. His goal revolves around consistent learning, while contributing to a community with a diverse voice, both in life and design.

 

Micah E Wood’s portrait photography flows with the vibrancy of the Baltimore music scene. Exploding with color, the work builds a sense of belonging and intimacy to the subject that can only be achieved by a thorough understanding of the specialness and sense of place in Baltimore. His portrait work from 2012-2016 culminated in his book ‘Features’, in which Micah turns his gaze adoringly on his favorite artists. Over the past eight years, Micah has only continued to document individuals of the microcosmic Baltimore music scene, such as emerging hip hop artists such as JPEGMAFIA to underground post punk bands to electropop legend Dan Deacon.

 

Micah disarms people, and curates intimate moments with the artists he photographs, and you can see that in his work. His approach to using light as a 3-dimensional or sculptural form on the human is a playful feature that links both his portrait and landscape work.
