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 to begin a creative career in Paris. She started out as managing editor at Self Service, after which she spent several years as Nan Goldin's studio manager, working closely with the artist editing and installing a number of exhibitions, slideshows and books.
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 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 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. Dossier was known as a platform that championed young creatives, and helped to launch the careers of many photographers, fashion designers, and artists. 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.
Skye now consults with a range of independent and global clients on special projects, helping to realize their 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 activations. She publishes a platform called Perfect Days, which looks at motherhood and other female experiences through a creative lens, as well as Double or Nothing, which explores multi-media content. She is currently working as the creative director on the upcoming relaunch of Playgirl as a semi-annual, feminist publication.
After a lifetime of urban-living, Skye is splitting her time right now between New York City and Sayulita, Mexico, and wherever else she gets to travel for work.
