ABSURD & IRREVERENT?  Well yes that's my cup of tea.

ABSURD & IRREVERENT?  Well yes that's my cup of tea.

Imaginative with a slice of irony...

Kristyna Archer is a photographer and director that is inspired by her own 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 neck documenting her friends misadventures'.  One day her friend introduced her to the darkroom and she started skipping classes to mix chemicals and develop film all day- she soon feel in love with that creative process.  Fast forward, she received a BFA in photography at Columbia College Chicago where she then spent a decade.  Now she currently splits time between LA & NYC.  She also eats 3 cups of carrots a day to nurture her keen eyesight and best asset.  :) 

She is the creator of the MergeLeft Podcast, a podcast exploring art and commerce thru conversations with shape-shifters in arts, media, advertising, and entertainment.
