Brooklyn native Tarik Carroll is a fashion, music, and commercial photographer whose signature style blends his pop art influences with graphic design adding a fresh, audacious twist. He uses vibrant colors as well as intense black and white images to create his own uniquely fresh contemporary aesthetic.

Growing up, Tarik experienced being isolated and discriminated for being “not thin enough, not thick enough, too pale, too black or simply not beautiful enough” and started reflecting on the pressures by society to conform to stereotypes of beauty and perfection.

By entering the fashion industry, Tarik soon discovered that basically a wide array of men from different walks of life have at least once struggled with body image issues.

In the Mission’s section of his website, Tarik recalls: “Listening to male models with bodies that rival greek gods tell me that they too suffer from body image issues was equally eyeopening and jarring. Hearing damaging childhood stories of isolation, fear and obsessive self scrutiny made me realize that as men, we had more in common than I previously believed.”
