We asked for pictures and she gave us soft, natural, beautiful. We asked for music and she gave us Sade, Bill Withers, James Brown. When it comes to the senses one thing is clear, New York-based photographer and DJ Alejandra Sabillón knows which buttons to press. Immersed in the things she loves, Sabillón’s days are spent behind the lens, often styling her subjects, too, and by night you can find her DJing at any number of local haunts including GrandLife Hotels for which she has a weekly residency. Now, let us ignite your senses with the words, imagery and tracklist created specially for RUSSH by this New York triple threat.
I take photographs because ...
I can't stop!
In a subject I look for ...
Something I saw recently that made me go wow ...
Frank Stella at the Whitney Museum.
After moving to New York I learned ...
That it's a very small world.
This playlist is best listened to ...
At home while working on some dance moves.
