Steve is a funny bastard who splits time between Brooklyn & Boston also well-versed in hipster diners in the greater LA area. He has shot for a bunch of magazines & websites, seen a million faces…and rocked'em all.
He’s never met an instant film stock he didn’t like.
His work has appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Maxim, The Huffington Post, Grantland, and for Kill Rock Stars, and Riot Style Records. He has exhibited his work in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Austin, Marfa, Lubbock, Fresno, New Bedford, and Portland, OR.

Anything that isn't your boring cul-de-sac and empty swimming pool, and you find yourself in isolation, revolting, and making shit while the rest of the world, including those urban centers who dictate what's "cool" and of the moment find what you are doing in your little town to be far more interesting, rebellious, and exciting than anything that's being created in the world today and you get a book published, an album produced or a skate video financed? That is Frezno." -Evan Pricco, Juxtapoz Magazine

“Tony's ladies are kittens, good girls underneath the tattoos; his food images, on the other hand, are some of the raunchiest you'll ever have the pleasure to behold, and these hot tamales may arouse you more viscerally than you ever expected. Let the record state that the art of photographing edibles lost its innocence in 2010, down a back alley in Fresno--with T&T&A, food porn has truly arrived. iBuen Apetito!" -Matt Lee, author of The Lee Bros.

Yana Toyber doesn't remember the two years she spent in her native Ukraine before her parents moved to Brighton Beach, but her photography nevertheless betrays an outsider's eye, a hard-edged Eastern-bloc poetry. Her sense of grace and form—specifically the female form—was honed in part at the School of American Ballet, which she attended on scholarship as a teenager. A graduate of the School of Visual Arts, Yana has flitted through Manhattan's art and fashion circles for more than a decade, chronicling the city's culture and nightlife for such publications as The Fader and Vanity Fair. Her work has appeared in museums and galleries including the International Center of Photography, Kodak Eastman House, and the Soho photo gallery.
