Daily Dose Pick: Austin Young

After capturing the likes of Oliver Stone, Simon Cowell, Margaret Cho, and Amy Poehler, photographer Austin Young is turning his camera on the public with an interactive solo exhibit.

Young’s vibrant portraits have been published in Vogue, Rolling Stone, Flaunt, and Interview, with subjects ranging from A-list celebrities to drag queens. Part Warhol’s Factory, part 21st-century photo studio, his latest project, Your Face Here, is an opportunity for non-celebrities to become part of the show, too.

The photographer is also behind Fallen Fruit, an activist art collective that began as the mapping of fruit trees in LA neighborhoods. Its recent year-long EATLACMA series attracted sold-out crowds with food-related talks, performances, and other events.
