BEEN is a digital platform and creative studio exploring the representation of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in media, nature, and beyond. BEEN was founded with the mission to shift collective cultural imagination around BIPoC by amping what already exists and creating what doesn’t.

Through photography, essays, poetry, design, film, and collaborations with friends, BEEN seeks to carry the narratives, arts, and beauty of Brown and Black into the future through the intimacy of imagery and naming.

while there’s many aspirations, BEEN is currently available in the following capacities:

_ foto (+ journalism

_ consultation

_ writing

_ directing (film)

_ production

_ media + brand consulting

_ speaking engagements

_ design
