Myles Loftin has already made a name for himself as one to watch in photography. The Forbes 30 Under 30 honoree’s work, which has been featured in the likes of New York Magazine, W and iD, celebrates the LGBTQ+ and Black communities, which he aims to give visibility to through image. In fact, a lot of Loftin’s photos feature his own family and friends. Set to graduate from Parsons School of Design this year, and already having shot ads for the likes of Adidas, Calvin Klein and Nike, Loftin is poised to become the next big name in photography.
