Reginald Levy is a 17-year-old film photographer working in Altanta, GA. He submitted his work to us last week and it was refreshingly raw and natural compared to the usual photoshop editorials we receive. Looking through his photos was like clicking through someone’s photo album – point-and-shoot snapshots of friends, nights out – a glimpse into a teen scene. -CM
