Skye Parrott is 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 and beginning her creative career in Paris. There she worked as managing editor at Self Service, moving on to spend the next several years as Nan Goldin's studio manager. She worked closely with the artist editing and installing a number of exhibitions, slideshows and books, most notably "Sisters, Saints and Sybils," "Chasing the Ghost," and the catalogue for the artist’s Hasselblad Award.
As a photographer and director, Skye has shot for a wide range of editorial and advertising clients. Her personal photography has been exhibited in solo and group shows in the U.S. and Europe. She has collaborated on several photo projects with the artist Robert Longo, and has curated and organized a number of group 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.
After returning home to New York, Skye co-founded Dossier, a biannual arts and fashion journal. As publisher and creative director, she collaborated with numerous artists and photographers over the course of the magazine's twelve issues to edit and curate their work, including with the photographer David Armstrong on the first edit for his book "Night and Day", which was originally published as a portfolio in the debut issue of Dossier. Dossier was known to be a platform that championed young creatives, and helped to launch the careers of many photographers, fashion designers, and artists.
Skye now consults with a range of independent and global clients on special projects, helping them to realize both short- and long-term creative and communications goals. She has collaborated with brands such as Bergdorf Goodman, Aesop, Pamela Love, Etsy and Vans on both digital and print publications, editorial initiatives, exhibitions, experiential projects and special events.
Skye currently lives with her family in Sayulita, Mexico, and works between New York and Paris.
