Through Callie’s Eyes

A selection of staff photographer Callie Lugosi’s work

Callie Lugosi began taking photos at age 12, during a trip to Japan with their dad. They naturally developed a documentarian style and has always loved shooting in colour. In 2016, while documenting the mural painting process for Synonym Art Consultation’s Wall-to-Wall festival, she developed an interest in photojournalism.

Lugosi studied through the New York Institute of Photography and runs a colour film development lab out of their home. Their work is inspired by love, music and people living their truth.

Wall-to-Wall 2016. "I was so enamoured by this festival. I showed up to almost every single day to watch the progess of these murals."

"I love these guys so much. I started taking photos of 3Peat in October 2016. They made me love live music photography again."

"When film gets a little dusty, I think it adds to its charm. I love texture."

Patricia Beach, 2016. "It was my birthday, and all I wanted to do was take photos and hang out with my friends at the beach. It was a perfect day."
