A critical thinker and an intuitive feeler. I embrace the light and the darkness. I hunt to find stories, art, and film that are provocative and resonant, and I live to create experiences that are visceral. I'm adaptable, unafraid, and constantly craving new life experiences. I'm ready to roll up my sleeves and attack, rather than letting life pass me by.
My art is inspired by nature and I work almost exclusively with materials found in the wilderness. I work across all media and explore the themes of hunger, the hunt, and the energy cycle.
Food is a central driving force in my work. Exploring its place in different cultures as nourishment and sustenance, but also the meal as a shared experience, is a great entry point into learning about and understanding traditions and commune among groups of people. I'm inspired by the visceral and carnal elements inherent in cooking and preparing food, and find purpose in sharing it with others.
Mallory Lance is the founder and creative director of Ravenous Media, and the editor-in-chief of Ravenous Zine. After graduating from Barnard College at Columbia University with a degree in Film Studies, she began her career working in the film industry in the programming department at the Tribeca Film Festival, working her way up from intern to manager of her department. After a brief period in lifestyle book publishing as a senior editor at Regan Arts, a subdivision of Phaidon Press, she came back to Tribeca as the Director of Publications and Operational Logistics.
Driven by an innate need to reconnect with the wild, underground and fascinating worlds of discovery, she left office work to become an event producer and content creator, launching Ravenous Craft, a lifestyle destination for which she curated and conceptualized workshops, dinners, and tastings, partnering with Atlas Obscura and other organizations, dedicated to peeling back the layers and unearthing the history behind craft that goes into food, drink, and plant medicine.
Concurrently, she began her food styling career and has since amassed a list of top level clients, national and global brands. While working freelance as a food stylist, she continues to produce events and content that fit the Ravenous ethos while producing volume III of Ravenous Zine, set for a March 2019 release. Her interests include beach camping on surfing trips, making fires in the woods and cooking for everyone, always.
Her work has been featured in Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Gothamist, Refinery 29, and Time Out New York, and her food styling clients include Pret A Manger, Matrix Biolage, Google, Spotify, HelloFresh, Green Chef, Amaro Montenegro, Fernet Branca, Matte Black, Sam Edelman, Bakeri Brooklyn, BUST Magazine, and many others.
