ABOUT

 
MY NAME IS EDSEL & MY WORK IS INSPIRED BY CLASSICAL ART, MODERN DESIGN & POTENTIAL ENERGY.

 

Formerly a touring musician, with an album on Billboard's Top 100 and features in magazines like Rolling Stone, I left my career in music in 2015 to pursue my vision for photography and film.

That same year, I was featured by Instagram for writing the first-ever Instagram novel, a photographic story written in installations called #TheValleyofAshes. The feature received nearly a million likes and launched my career as a multi-medium creator for both my writing and photography.

In 2016, I was given 24 hours by Adobe to create images based on the concept of "forward motion," as part of Adobe's Creative Jam competition. The image was selected as the winner of the competition, and a few short months later, the same image was awarded the Grand Prize in PDN's PERSPECTIVES Contest.

It was then I realized that my work is inspired by the notion of potential energy. Capturing either the calm moment amidst the storm or the hero amidst the obstacle.

 

 

In 2017, I began translating my vision into motion as a filmmaker and director. The culmination of this debut was PARALLAX, a film created for Sony using only their RX0 cameras (smaller than a GoPro). They loved the film so much they invited me to CES in January 2018 to speak about my piece in front of thousands.

In February of 2018, I was selected as a winner of PDN's ADRENALINE Contest for my fitness series revolving around the concept of women's empowerment.
