“Hey! My name is Myles Loftin (@goldenpolaroid
) and I live in New York City. I’m a 19-year-old freelance photographer and student at Parsons School of Design. I was always interested in art and creating, but it wasn’t until five years ago, when I took a trip to Italy with my family, that I realized photography was what I was really interested in doing.
**Three things I’m grateful for:**
My friend Anzie is very determined about what she wants to do. She moved to New York from Texas, and I’ve seen her grow a lot since she’s been here. She’s also very supportive of what I’m doing; I always know that I can count on her if I have something that I’m worried about or something that I just want to get off my chest.
I photographed director Barry Jenkins once, and when it was later published, he took the time out of his day to acknowledge me. The fact that he remembered me and had such positive things to say about my career was incredible.
They’re empowering young people to be active politically. I think they’re doing a really good job of that.”
