The 2014 Allday Photo Show "Milk & Oysters," is just around the corner, opening at Ed.Varie with a roster of talented and insightful artists.

Kathy Lo is our resident NYC cool-girl photographer, having taken portraits of India Menuez, Sara Hantman and Arielle de Pinto for our Girls, Girls, Girls series. She also braved the NYFW trenches backstage for us with her coverage of the A Detacher and Assembly FW14 shows.

While recently she’s been all over town hanging with some seriously cool chicks in the art and fashion world, Kathy also used to hold down the fort at The Journal, where she served as Director of Photography. Her collaboration with Allday came about organically, with Kathy “not exactly sure how it happened” but started with the “Mermaid Queens editorial I shot in the blazing hot summer!”

According to Kathy, “there’s something odd and beautiful” about the photo she’s chosen to feature in “Milk & Oysters,” which will be unveiled at the opening on December 11. Up next for the photographer is a zine/book she’s working on with Katie McCurdy, called “NEVER GOING HOME,” coming out in 2015.
