Billy Kid is a thief. Don’t be so literal: he just stoles the more genuin expressions and reflect them on a true vibrant and perhaps shocking photography. You see the truth in Billy’s photos: fear, despair, anger. Human emotions are revealed by unforgiving lens. And it seems so truth, that you can’t avoid to let yourself be lost in this sort of limbo. I’ll call it art.
Billy has a blog. There, you can assist to his intimate, raw and gritty style. What is impressing in his style is that he has no superficial fashionista dogma or emotional manipulation tricks in his work. Truth can be discovered in each intense photo.
Kidd is originally from Phoenix, Arizona but lives in Brooklyn. He’s only been able to call himself a photographer since 2007, “I was horrible,” he says. “I didn’t have any inspiration, and didn’t connect photography with art. It wasn’t until I shot a friend – a woman – that I shot anything good.”
We truly believe that his simplicity is his weapon, while he captures each face in a secure and simple way with his Canon 5d mark II.
We let you with some delightfull images of his astonishing work.
Angry, at its purest form
The I-don’t-give-a-damn expression
