Johnnie Shand Kydd

 

Biography and information

After working for a number of years at a Bond Street Gallery selling 19th century paintings, Shand Kydd began taking photographs of his artist friends and peers. As a participant - as opposed to an observer - he captured the community of Young British Artists before they became household names. From March ‘96 to July ‘97 he photographed the contents of the book Spitfire (Violette, 1997) and Crash (Damiani/2006), which documents the YBAs and others, and demonstrates Shand Kydd’s refined, straightforward and confident approach in both theme and technique. In strict black-and-white, he captures art world luminaries like Gilbert & George, Sam Taylor-Wood, Richard Prince, Juergen Teller, Maurizio Cattelan and Tracey Emin. His work is in various public collections including the National Portrait Gallery. He lives and works in London.
