Tyler The Creator and Kendall Jenner were just some of celebs that attended the opening of photographer Renell Medrano’s debut solo show, Pampara on Monday night in London. “Pampara is me going back to my Dominican roots and exploring that in-depth for the first time; my adult self returning to the culture and community I was surrounded by growing up. I wanted to pay homage to the loving energy and beauty of the Dominican way of life and let it shine for the world to see,” Medrano told WWD.
