Jon Medel’s photo essay, as told by Edward Deull, provides a glimpse into how one ballerina may be on the verge when her selfies aren’t good enough, and her director and audience don’t pay enough attention. Is she going to lose it? Are we?

STORIES

Gay Rights Movement: Stonewall – Now | Justified Hype

From the Stonewall Inn riots of ’69 to the current termination of a catholic school teacher due to his sexuality, Jeffery Hoyle, gay rights activist, calls upon us to remember the past, celebrate today, and hope for tomorrow.

Moonshine Cover Shoot: Jon Medel’s Creative Process

JH Creator and photographer Jon Medel was tapped by Editor-in-Chief Arash Afshar to manifest an inspired image for our “Moonshine” cover of the JH digital magazine.

LIFESTYLE

Make Art, Not Commercials

Jamahl is one of my best friends. We text each other articles and ridiculous Facebook screen caps. We were members of the same frat at SDSU and have shared rides on our fair share of Vegas road trips.

RIGHT NOW

A Toast to Possibilities

It’s a Friday night in the Arrow Lounge at Uptown Tavern, and Arash alternates between shots of Maker’s Mark and sips of Yerba Mate. This is the launch party for Justified Hype, a project three years in the making.
