KYUR8_38 Guest Editor: Stephonik Youth

Stephonik Youth is the lead vocalist for LIVING DAYS, a three piece dance art pop band from New York City. If you are a gamer, then you may have heard their song ”Little White Lie” , since it is part of the soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto 5. Neil Davidge of Massive Attack features Stephonik for 3 songs on his new solo record which she also wrote, and her band’s new album "Dance Not Dead", is due out in Spring 2014.

KYUR8_37 Guest Editors: Nathalie Coppens & Khairi Mdnor

A Miss Nathalie Coppens from Belgium, and a Mister Khairi Mdnor from Singapore could only meet and make an ethnically ambiguous magical baby, who has 3 passports before she is even in preschool—only in New York City. This progressive duo adds to the city’s energy by producing and creating designs, events, art and curating music that keeps all that they do activating and inspiring. Nathalie and Khairi are influenced by their daughter Milla and travel the world together seeking adventure and exploring the bohemian life as much as possible. We want to be just like you when we grow up Nat & Khairi. Thank you for showing us it is possible.

Samantha West…, what a great name…it’s one of those names you want to meet to see if the name suits the personality, or to just know as a friend. We hope one day to meet this talented lady out of New York City who draws inspiration from the truly feminine form and images makers such as Nan Goldin, Lilian Bassman and Deborah Turbeville.

KYUR8_35 Guest Editor: Lasse Dearman

Lasse Dearman wrote us an email this past summer and praised our community here at KYUR8. He asked us to look at his work to see if we were interested in having him guest edit an issue. He sent us links to his work, and we saw his journey as a portrait photographer to the narrative story teller that he is, that we all are.

Today everyone has a voice, everyone has a camera… all the more reason to tell your story, shoot what you know, and photograph a POV that can only be created by youBecause you can

Thank you Lasse for writing us and collaborating with the inspired here at KYUR8 and kickstarting 2014.

KYUR8_34 Guest Editor: Jiwon Yeo

We’d like to end 2013 with full encouragement to all our viewers/artists/photographers/image makers -  to continue to submit work and/or inquire about possibly guest editing a future issue of KYUR8. 

Like our December guest editor Jiwon Yeo, who wrote us back in August and expressed interest and patience in having us review her work… Jiwon sincerely wanted to contribute to the ongoing transformation of the web in conjunction with her work and interests. We loved her email and pursuit of something that she loved to do, and were more than glad to collaborate with someone with a great attitude and willingness to share. Thank you Jiwon and thank you viewers for your continued support of KYUR8… it’s all for you! Happy Holidays! Here’s to 2014!!!!

The potency of technology is being felt more than ever. This month’s guest editor is Michael Christopher Brown, who is a photojournalist who uses his iPhone to get the story. Michael curates for us some images shot on his iPhone from the Democratic Republic of Congo and also shares with us photographers he follows on Instagram who inspire him and are changing the face of journalism. We look forward to Michael’s upcoming book on Libya in 2014.

Thank you Ruben for curating a memorable issue along with your hand-picked collaborators. image
