About the speaker

Originally from Garden City, KS, Travis Young is a commercial photographer based in Kansas City, working for brands such as Adidas, Urban Outfitters, Tropicana, Rossville Union, and others. Off the clock he leaves his digital cameras at home and photographs exclusively with film cameras which help keep him grounded in this thing Travis continues to understand as his own life. In his words, “analogue photography continually prods at my emotions and provides me the ability to form lasting memories otherwise missed.”

This month Travis Young tackles the theme Water going beyond what we can see in the surface. As he shares his life story with us, he will push our community to pay attention to necessary elements of self-care and self-reflection in order to overcome the toxic environments we are often placed in.
