Imaginative Self-Portraits by Zev Hoover

Zev Hoover is a 14-year-old photographer from Natick, Massachusetts, whose self-portraits can bring you into another world. Depending on the photo, that world is either small and whimsical or normal-sized, lonely and beautiful. Both of his styles have a distinct, imaginative feel, like pieces of a story or glimpses into a creative mind.

I do hope you find a profitable avenue to offer your work for sale, for I’m certain it would grace the walls of many, including my own. I wish you… Read more »
