Kavan Cardoza aka “Kavan The Kid” is a music video director and photographer based in Los Angeles. His photographic work is expressive and creepy, like “Monster in the Dark” (above) of an old lady who could steal the show in horror film “Insidious.” Other images such as “God’s Outcasts,” “A Vanishing Soul” and “Burning from Inside” all seem to be related with an artist who feels marginalized and sometimes lost inside. Although Cardoza once majored in Psychology at Boise State University, he dropped out because he knew he could express his feelings better through film and photography.
