Design & Photography / Curation
Jacky Lawrence is a photographer, video maker, and proficient dabbler in a smattering of other artistic endeavors such as graphic design, fx makeup, and prop-making; all of which he tries to incorporate into his photographic work. He is the creator of Home Video Horrors, an ongoing series of photo tributes to cult horror films of the VHS era. Jacky prefers to make and consume things which are weird or offbeat, considers smut to be art, and enjoys watching bad movies unironically.
