Skye Parrott is a multi-disciplined artist and creative. She grew up in Hoboken, NJ, went to high school in Brooklyn, and studied Political Science at UCLA before changing directions to begin her creative career in Paris. She has worked as managing editor at Self Service, and as studio manager for Nan Goldin, overseeing operations of both her New York and Paris studios.
Skye has worked with numerous editorial and advertising clients as a photographer and director. She has collaborated on photo projects with the artist Robert Longo, worked with David Armstrong on the first edit for his book Night and Day, and has curated several photography exhibitions, including "Younger Than I'll Be" at The Brooklyn Academy of Music, which looked at the experience and freedoms of youth in New York City.
As a creative director and brand consultant, she works with a range of independent and global clients on print and digital publications, websites, communications initiatives, editorial content, branding, exhibitions and experiential activations.
Skye is the co-founder and creative director of Dossier, the globally distributed biannual arts and fashion journal. Dossier was known as a platform that championed young creatives, which helped to launch the careers of many photographers, fashion designers, and artists.
Skye is editor-in-chief for the upcoming re-launch of the iconic, feminist publication Playgirl Magazine. She is currently splitting her time between New York City and Sayulita, Mexico.
