Bound in thick rope, suffocating under a wet cloth … Kavan the Kid has continuously dedicated his lens to capturing dark and dramatic portraits. He shares behind-the-scenes footage to his creative process and editing of various works like “Relics” and “Heartless”on his Youtube channel. And mentioned (in a past interview) that “almost every photo that I do is a reflection of myself or the way I feel or think. That usually follows a darker, grittier feel. The sad realities of man in an abstract view.” In addition he has released a short film titled “Programmed” (2018) about modern man’s addiction to cell phones and the internet.
