SHIRLEY YU, 23
My current top three muses are Maye Musk, Tess Holliday, and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. A dream assignment of mine would be to align these women with Bust and shoot them in "a women of our times" empowering spread. I really look up to strong and independent women, who are unapologetically true to themselves and what they believe in.
I truly believe in recognition, mentorship, and community. As a rising photographer myself, I know how hard it is to get your first job, your first foot in the door and a continuous pipeline after that. So with this said, I think it is so important for established photographers, creatives, brands to share their favorite new finds, whether it be a photographer, or a website, or a technique to their communities. This allows for up and coming artists to get recognition as well as the community at large, to grow, learn and have further insight into tomorrow's future talent.
