rad creative of the day: chicago-based photographer lawrence agyei builds brand with organic portraits

July 28, 2016

Today’s RAD CREATIVE shout out goes to Chicago-based photographer Lawrence Agyei. Rooted in editorial and portraiture, Agyei’s work is recognizable for its cool toned palettes and non-traditional staging that tends to position subjects turned slight away from the lens, creating images that appear more organic in a way that captures the essence of a subject in-the-moment. Check out some of our favorite shots from Agyei down below.
