LUKAS MAVERICK GREYSON
Lukas Maverick Greyson is a photojournalist, designer and LGBTQ+ grant specialist based in Brooklyn, New York. After designing accessories for global fashion companies throughout Europe and Asia, he became Creative Director and Archivist for celebrity photographer Patrick McMullan where he designed the largest photo book on NYC nightlife entitled, so8os: A Photographic Diary of a Decade (powerHouse Books). For over two decades, he was also one of the top press photographers at the Patrick McMullan agency covering celebrity events, fashion shows, weddings and parties from LA to London.
He then left New York City for war-torn Uganda, Africa where he created and managed MEND, the revolutionary brand and charitable program by Invisible Children. This ground breaking project changed the face of both fashion and NGO-focused humanitarian efforts, creating a sustainable handbag business and educational program for Ugandan women who escaped the war.
Greyson's work has been published worldwide and is respected for his documentary style and empathetic approach to capturing both the profound beauty and tragedy of everyday life. He graduated from Parsons School of Design with a BFA in Fashion Design, multiple gold and silver thimble awards, honors and the distinguished Designer of the Year award.
He currently works with survivors of violence and trauma at Mt Sinai Hospital and continues to photograph events and private parties. Greyson lives with his wife Elizabeth and two daughters.
He will be doing humanitarian work in Delhi, India in 2024.
