Influencer of the Week: Tyler Kpakpo

It’s #Monday and we have another Influencer of the Week. Influencer of the Week (#IOTW) is our celebration of artists around the world but most importantly in the artists inspiring their community. Having the opportunity to share other people’s journeys is our privilege.

🔥@tylerkpakpo🔥 is a photographer based in #Boston with the ability to invoke emotions in people while maintaining his creative voice and vision. “Like myself I believe a lot of artists are pushing that narrative or a similar one of self declaration and being unapologetic for who a person is.”

  “I would like to share some selects from an untitled photo series from 2017 centered around partnership. The models and clothing were chosen to draw a deliberate contrast between two individuals.     Both individuals resemble each other body/frame wise. I took direct inspiration from the    @kaws    "Companion" Figurines. More can be seen from this series on    @tylerkpakpo   .”    -Tyler Kpakpo

  “Now I know y'all are used to portraits but I wanted to break from that for a second to show y'all some lifestyle/street photography. These are from a trip up to Kennebunkport, Maine. All shots were on a Contax T2 with Portra 400.    I initially started photography using film. I then when I finally got the money switched to digital for the convenience. Now that I am comfortable with my style I have grown more attached to the rawness of film. It feels at home and I would never shoot digital again if I could haha.”
