JUNE CANEDO / NEW YORK, NY / GJCANEDO@GMAIL.COM
June Canedo was born in Newark, but has absolutely no connection to New Jersey because her parents decided to move back to Brazil after she was born. When June was nine, her family moved to America's redneck riviera otherwise known as Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Her dad is a construction worker and her mom cleans houses. She is the first of her family to graduate college. She endured a whole lot of racism in the South. She is of color and cares most about uplifting other people of color and representing them honestly in historically white-dominated spaces (fashion, art, media). Her parents still don't understand why she is vegan and after 20 years in America, she still makes all of their appointments because they speak very broken English. She now lives in New York, but spends a lot of time in her Corolla, driving around the South and documenting the culture she knows best. Her work, she hopes, is a mixture of all of the above.
