We are beyond honored! Thank you Direct Cannabis Network for featuring our founder this week!

Huffington post Interview

Thank you for this awesome interview, Huffpo!

"GORGEOUS is a photography book curated by photographer Rob Lebow and Creative Director Masha Kupets Navarre that seeks to explore the power of beauty, gender and their illusionary qualities through portraiture and personal interviews.

The series of portraits features prominent queer artists and performers with the goal of empowering artists and audiences alike by questioning mainstream definitions of gender and standard visual expectations with every photo.

The Huffington Post caught up with Lebow and Kupets Navarre this week to discuss GORGEOUS, what the pair are attempting to accomplish with the photo series and the larger conversation that the pair wants to engage the audience in through these photos."
