Renell Medrano Is a Visual Force to Be Reckoned With
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.
Photographer Renell Medrano is a hands down tour de force when it comes to the portrayal of her subjects. With an all-star roster of talent that includes the likes of Milk fam Luka Sabbat, model Paloma Elsesser, and musicians like Solange, Kelela, and A$AP Ferg, she’s at the top of her field. And that’s not all—Medrano also makes plenty of magic with brands, too (think Gucci, for starters), and kills the street style game, roaming her old hometown haunts in NYC and beyond. After a laundry list of accomplishments, it should come as no surprise that we’ve given Medrano the “Most Likely to Capture You on Fleek” superlative for 2018. Always traveling with camera in tow, this is one photographer who can never be caught off guard. Her 2018 motto? “Your faith should be greater than your fear.” Now that’s one way to start off the new year right.
