December 30, 2015

Check out these commanding portraits by photography blogger Neat Shiny Owl (aka Anthony Lewis). “People are beautiful and I hope to remind them of that,” states the NY based photographer – a photographer whose aim is to present positive images of people of color. In regards to how he got started, he writes: “What began as an experiment turned into a portrait journal and before I knew it: I was blogging. The initial raw form of the blog warranted that I just shoot. After the first year, I focused on making sure I did just a portrait a day. After a little over three years, things have changed and still are but I’m just grateful for consistency, on my end and with each new person I meet. Every portrait is its own reward for me and I truly mean that. I cannot say enough, to every person who has said yes”. Explore below.
