"That was my moment when I realized that it didn't just have to be about being the photographer, it's about photography."

Efrem Zelony-Mindell is an artist, critic, and a curator. He's written for The Huffington Post, Vice, aCurator, L'Oeill, Dear Dave, Mossless and more. His two latests shows were Are You Loathsome at Video Revival in Brooklyn and newflesh at the Rubber Factory gallery in NYC, a show that tries to help define queer art as being more inclusive and more broadly defined. We don't always list the bio of our guests because you can easily find that on a website, but with Efrem, who does not consider himself to be a photographer, it's important to know how multi-faceted his connection to photography is and how his impulse to curate, create, and write all come from the same place and desire to add beauty and meaning to that endeavor.
