Artist Spotlight: Ally Schmaling

Ally (they/them) is a lover of kind humans, vivid colors, Motown music, cold beer and dancing like a goddamn fool. They’re a classically trained opera singer and a hair dye aficionado. When they’re not capturing moments and souls, you can find them petting every dang dog they see. Clients and publications include: Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum, Vogue Italia, Afropunk, Bumble, Improper Bostonian, Boston Magazine, Apartment Therapy, Isenberg Projects, OpenView Venture Partners, and TrueMotion.
