self portrait

2018 in Review | 3D Gifs

I started 2018 with a new toy. And we played, a lot. So here are my favorite 3D gifs/wigglegrams/stereoscopic images I made last year.

From covering my roommate in milk to him covering me in silly string. From Astroworld Festival to Desert Daze to Air + Style. I can’t wait to see where this weird shit takes me this year.

Head here to see more. If you’re interested in getting a lenticular print of any of these images, hit me up here.

Westward Bound | Road Trip from Houston to Los Angeles on 35mm Film

When faced with the reality of a 23 hour car ride, I enlisted Anderson to join me in making the most of the American Southwest. Thus, two creatives packed one Subaru and set out on the road.

Three and a half days of podcasts, airbnbs, and spontaneous stops (...Roswell not pictured below) later and we'd made it to California.

Click the photos to see them big. I hope they give you half the wunderlust they give me, even after the fact.

Making Moves

This is me coping with the fact that I won't have a Houston address soon. This is also me taking advantage of this move returning my bedroom to the austere state I kept it in throughout high school (mattress on the floor in all its cozy glory).

My room was essentially my pseudo-studio from the time I began photography up until I left for college. And seeing that most of my friends reeled at the mention of shooting them, I became my subject. Thus, the era of "Kirby Takes Self Portraits" was born.

This room is where I shot self portraits that helped me develop my style. Learn how to devour and manipulate natural light. Explore expression and photography as a form of therapy. And create images that won statewide accolades.

So it only seems fitting to wrap up my time growing and learning in this room with a few more self portraits. It kinda feels right. It also kinda just feels like I'm in high school again.

Here's a handful of the images.
