Mel The King Is Photographing a New Generation
Introducing #MilkLoves: the definitive Milk roster of ones to watch in 2018. Follow along as we reveal our top 10 favorites to slay this year in activism, artistry, and more.
Melchizedek Gayle is no stranger to being surrounded by the greats. Think Lil Yachty, Lil Purpp, A$AP Rocky, Slick Woods, and Vashtie, for starters; all have appeared in front of his camera and on his Instagram. For that reason, we’ve crowned him “Most Likely to Shoot Everyone Who’s Anyone,” and, according to the photographer, 2018 is going to be just as lit: from the words of his mad lib, “2017 was pleasant for my eyes and 2018 will be nauseating for my doubters.” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
In the new year, Mel has plans for gallery openings in NYC (lucky us) and lots more dope portraits up his sleeve (he “plans on creating more art” and is “most ready to share.”). We’re all eyes.
