Carolina Ines was born in Queens, New York, and sold her DSLR 2 years ago to fund her move to Los Angeles. With just her iPhone in tow, she started to see the world a little bit differently.
Steven Perilloux hitchhiked from his home in Norco Louisiana to California, and never looked back. He learned photography from working at Samys Camera in Los Angeles, and by working with some of the biggest photographers of our time such as Terry Richardson, Mario Testino, and many more. Steven has shot for magazines such as iD and Dazed And Confused, and his commercial clients include Dickies and RVCA, among others. He is working on several personal projects at the moment, more of which will be revealed later this year.

Boo Hooray Gallery is proud to present Religious Observance. A group photography show featuring: Jerry Hsu, Ray Potes, Andrea Sonnenberg, C.R. Stecyk III & Tobin Yelland. This collection of artists are all connected through their fanatical love of photography. Their unwavering dedication of photography as an art form and means of expression, is devotional. One might even say photography is their religion. They observe life through their lens and are constantly trying to capture the moments of divine inspiration. And so we have Religious Observance a show of artists who are Street photographers, skateboarders and zine makers, and thru their camera, religious observers. Often putting themselves in new and different situations to try and capture what unfolds naturally. The show is a collection of recent work, photography and videos, that reflects their self exploration and surroundings. Artists in this show have been showcased at the MOCA’s Art in The Street, and as part of the Beautiful Losers traveling exhibition and movement.
