Imaginative with a slice of irony...
Kristyna Archer is a photographer and director who is inspired by paradoxical observations, the idiosyncrasies of human behavior, and an inherent love for fashion and design. She grew up in a suburb of Detroit with a Pentax K1000 wrapped around her shoulder while documenting her friend's adventures. After being introduced to a darkroom, she started skipping classes to mix chemicals and develop film all day- she soon feel in love with that creative process. Fast forward, she earned a BFA in photography at Columbia College and followed up with a decade of work in Chicago. Now she currently splits time between LA & NYC, eats 3 cups of carrots a day to nurture her best asset (keen eyesight), and she can currently be found befriending any cat that crosses her path. :)
Archer is the creator of the MergeLeft Podcast, a podcast exploring art and commerce thru conversations with shape-shifters in arts, media, advertising, and entertainment.
