"I started high school three days late, it was the only elective left."
The ADDMAG team is always looking to support and highlight our generation’s creative community. So we decided to have a flash page contest and how we came into contact with our first winner is still a thing of amazement. Thanks to social media we got a submission from a young man with an eye for photography.
He goes by the alias LurkW$rk, a west coast native with a flair for eye catching scenery that is as tantalizing as it is suggestive. He submitted on a whim and we were immediately intrigued by his portfolio. Candid shots and meticulously plotted moments were blended effortlessly in his work. He made a photo look like he caught a moment rather than created it. Lust, humor, music, objectification, dark imagery and the human body are all some of Lurks conceptual focuses.
This Las Vegas native was immediately the stand out submission from the group and when we inquired about more of his work, the more we realized we made the right choice. Our flash page is our doorbell to the “turtle box of a home” we refer to as ADDMAG. Scrolling through Lurk’s different conceptual shoots we heard that symbolic “Ding Dong”.
