Lombard is a Brooklyn documentary photographer who has shot for numerous publications including WIRED, New York Times and Vanity Fair. She started with Alexis Gross (@alexisjadegross), a photographer whose gritty images of LA offer a fresh perspective.
“Instagram is a place where everyone tries to sugarcoat their lives–glamorous vacations, avocado toast and perfect, loving relationships,” Lombard says. “In other words, for a lot of people, it’s pretty removed from reality. Alexis Gross’s work is about as real as it gets.”
After tumbling down the rabbit hole, Lombard discovered Zara Mirkin (@zaraeloise), a stylist and photographer whose fashion images always take you by surprise.
