PhotoSynthesizers is a Hip-Hop Rock Duo out of Richmond, Va. The group consists of its co-founding members, Maurice "Barzencode" Osion (lyricist) and Josh Bryant (producer). Barz and Bryant's art alliance, rhyme-rock hybrid, began its synthesis when the two met through a local publication in the group's hometown.
