Shoot the Breeze: Morgan Maher

Brooklyn photographer Morgan Maher’s work consists mostly of portraits of young women. Carefully lit and styled, she captures her subjects in thoughtful, honest moments. A certain element of youth and dreaminess can be found her scenes and subjects. The young photographer will be moving to France to study at SCAD this fall and we look forward to seeing more of her fantastical photographs. -Talya Cyr
