Photographer. Actor. Writer. Artist.
Born and raised in Dorchester, MA. Colgan is always involved in making art in a variety of disciplines. If he’s not reading, he is somewhere taking pictures, acting, or writing. Listen to Colgan break down his love for seeing and creating art inspired by the world around him.
In his own words: "I’ve realized through music and definitely now with photography and acting, I require a certain personal connection with my work. It has to mean something. It started with the idea, of just making cool stuff. But after loving, living, and working for a little time, I would rather my work and time truly mean something to me and other people. So I just jumped into the art world and went back to painting, drawing, writing and photography. Photography just made me appreciate life and the beauty around me even more."
