I have been following Billy Kidd’s work for a very long time.
I remember around 5 years ago, just awing at his incredible raw black and white photos of woman without make-up. They looked like something you had never seen before.
What I loved about his work was that he embodied ‘ugly pretty’, the idea that a woman doesn’t have to stick her butt out and pout her lips to be sexy.
Now with his imminent success, he has made a name for himself and I can now have the pleasure of seeing his work in high fashion editorials.
Billy Kidd’s Double Jeu for Numero #148 let’s me know that he is still keeping his aesthetic. We are still seeing something unexpected yet some beautifully strange.
