Kelly O
Kelly O—Stranger staff photographer, music writer, Drunk of the Week columnist, and more!—finished art school and a soul-crushing internship at a corporate advertising agency in Detroit, then fled the Midwest and landed in Seattle in 1998, starry-eyed and hoping to design record covers for Sub Pop. She eventually sent a heart-shaped pizza to The Stranger’s art department and was promptly hired as a designer. Kelly’s photography has appeared in three solo gallery shows, and several group shows including Seattle's Greg Kucera Gallery, as well as in Spin, BUST, The FADER, URB, and Mojo Magazine. She once interviewed Hugh Hefner on the telephone, and she has seen the band Slayer 19 times. More of Kelly's photography here and here.
