Enkrypt Los Angeles
is photographer, videographer, and director based in Los Angeles, California. Yes, Enkrypt is the name she answers to. She enjoys the rawness of street photography and Inspired by graffiti and even gang life on the streets of LA. Enkrypt seeks to capture what may be called ugly and make it beautiful, powerful, and able to break down stereotypes. She started as an IT technician at Sony pictures. As part of her job, she was given a camera to document the condition of electronics for warranty claims. And that camera changed her life. Enkrypt has gone on to work extensively with the rapper Reverie and produce all kinds of media for Cortez Brothers and Estrella Jalisco. She prides herself in being a self-taught, hard-working artist who has taken big risks to become the artist she wants to be. We were introduced to Enkrypt a few years back by our mutual friend Casey Zoltan - who himself is renowned for his art and for his galleries/brands, Known Gallery and The Seventh Letter. Since then we have stayed in touch and it has been great watching Enkrypt develop into the artist and entrepreneur that she is today. If listening to her doesn't make you feel like you can do anything, then we don't know what will. We are grateful to have her as part of this series. Not bad for a girl from the hood, huh?
