If our wildest dreams could be printed in a photograph, they might look something like the works of LA-based photographer Kavan the Kid. His moody and often tense images invite us to stroll into the darkest parts of our own imaginations as we fill in the twisted back-stories to the characters presented before us. Their faces and hands, often painted over, seem to overflow with emotions of despair, melancholy, or quiet contemplation. And the compositions are laden with dark symbols and violent pops of color to hint at an entire history waiting to be told inside the composition.
Before he was a photographer, Kavan once pursued a psychology degree at Boise State University. But he dropped out within three weeks to pursue his creative passion. That bold decision has certainly paid off for him. [h/t beautifuldecay.com]
