About

I am Johnnie Ray Kornegay III, and I wear many hats. He am a photographer, storyteller, consultant and coach. I am Mobilization Director for Counter Narrative Project, a non profit organization advocating around issues impacting Black gay men. He is also the Founder & Artistic Director of Staticc Art & Life, LLC, an arts company with the mission “delivering beauty to the world.”

I began my company as a way to promote other artists, and it quickly morphed into consulting with other artists. I have produced music videos, including Ron Shirley II's "Guy Like Me." For that video I turned my living room into a soundstage. I have produced live podcasts including DJ Sir Daniel's "Shuffle & Repeat: The Podcast." My first live show ever, featured legendary DJ Jazzy Joyce. I have curated art shows, including I AM: Art, Activism and HIV at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights.

I do my work for the love, and I am asking for help to keep doing it! So often I find that our stories are stilted or watered down and often lack emotional complexity and variety. I see my work as continuing the work of Marlon Riggs, Essex Hemphill, Rotimi Fani-Kayode and Gordon Parks. Filmmaking, words and photography are all important to my work. I am always searching for a new way to communicate what’s happening. I am committed to telling the story behind the story - our fullness, our emotion.

Thanks so much for the opportunity to keep bringing amazing content to the world!
