Who? When you hear the name King Texas, you probably think that person is a guy from Texas or that has some relation to the giant southern state. Well, think again. King Texas is actually a female photographer hailing from NYC and a current Brooklyn borough resident. She's been taking photos since the end of high school and has since been building up a repertoire of shots of everything from NYC nightlife to portraits in the streets of BK. She was a part of The New Pop team for a few years, along with previously featured TONE as well as a fellow by the name of Trevz. After working together for a little bit, they each decided they wanted to explore their own paths individually. They still keep in touch, though, and all seem to be doing great on their own.
Tales of the Visual: Texas and I met by the Brooklyn Bridge recently to discuss why she started taking photos, where her unique name originated from, what she feels is the most important part of a photo, and much more. Press play and enjoy. You can also see a photo she snapped of me (that day) HERE.
This is the third episode of a new series entitled 'Flipping The Lens.' The idea behind the series is to take the folks who are usually behind the camera and turn the lens around on them to see what they're like.
