Justin “Suede” Hunte is a cinematographer, creative producer and documentary photographer.
Suede was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised in the South Bronx. While attending Williams College, he worked part time for a few years at The Clark Art Institute in the president’s office as well as the curatorial department - focusing on 18th and 19th century decorative arts exhibits. In addition, Justin interned for a summer at the Rubin Museum of Art in NYC through the Studio Institute’s Arts Intern program where he was first introduced to the cultures and art from the Himalayan regions.
Thanks to these early unique opportunities, he gained immense experience early on through working with multiple department heads, leading solo exhibition projects and networking with other artists. Suede still continues to learn the the value of advancing the public’s understanding of art.
You can find often Suede in the traffic of life throughout the streets of NYC (and sometimes LA) strapped with a camera on hand and ready to document the constantly evolving surroundings through his eyes but ultimately shoots with his heart.
