About the artists & curator
Terrain features three Brooklyn, New York based emerging photographic talents with a focus on the environment, nature and on urban landscapes.
This show is curated by Leah Oates and features photographers Julian Craig, Rocco Polanco and Max St-Jacques.
Julian Craig is a photographer born in and currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. Having become enamoured with photography at a young age, Julian has pursued the medium as a means to document his explorations of the wildly variant artificial landscapes of New York City. Throughout his life, Julian has plumbed the depths, ascended the heights, and explored the lost enclaves of this city seeking to capture the unseen perspectives and forbidden vistas, so that he may share them with the world.
Rocco Polanco is a photographer, model, clothing designer, entrepreneur, graffiti artist, and a native resident of the Bronx. His work indulges in the subterranean tunnels and vast structures of New York City and reflects upon the interplay of light and space. Rocco attended Maker Academy from 2018 to 2020, and transferred to City as School in 2020 to pursue photography and videography. Rocco will be graduating from City as School in 2022. His fashion line, Wanted for Sacrilege™ is available for custom order."
Max St-Jacques is an actor, model, artist who has acted in A Gathering of Shifts shot in New York City and his photography is currently featured in Up North Literary Online Magazine in 2021, in Stone Soup Magazine in 2015 and in late 2021 his work will be featured in The Lunch Break Zine. Max is a Canadian American who lives between Brooklyn, NYC and Toronto, Ontario.
