About Zak Krevitt
Zak Krevitt (b. 1991, Los Angeles) is a longtime advocate for LGBTQ+ communities. For over a decade, he has been working with, marching for, and fundraising alongside his queer community for a variety of related causes. Most recently he has began long distance cycling while shooting, in conjunction with fundraising efforts for HIV/AIDS. His work lives within this passion for queer advocacy, and represents his lived experiences both public and private. The work also deals heavily in concepts of transformation, post-humanism, power-exchange, anthropology, and the ability to create authenticity through photographic crystallization of reified desire. Krevitt is a Professor at the School of Visual Arts Department of Photo and Video in NYC under the guidance of Joseph Maida. He hopes to impart a spirit of activism, adventure, community and creative expansion into his students.
Zak Krevitt has worked in a variety of capacities for several publications including VOGUE, The New York Times, W Magazine, The Fader, Yahoo Style, VICE, New York Magazine, PHILE Magazine, TEEN VOGUE, Them, WIRED, Oxford University Press, Luisiana State University Press, and more. While he specializes in editorial documentary, he has also worked in motion graphics, photo illustration, animation, artistic and creative direction.
