Los Angeles and New York City based fashion photographer Andrew Kuykendall has been working professionally for about two and a half years now, after trying out as an assistant first. “I got kicked out of art school in LA a few years ago and started assisting. I hated that and realized I had to do it myself,” he says. Since that his work has been published in magazines such as Oyster, Zoot, Celeste, Mirage, Material Girl, Qvest, Nico, Soma, Kult, Culture, Thrasher and I love Fake.
His list of sources of inspirations is long, but definitely one of the most interesting ones: “Egon Schiele, David Lynch, Tom Waits, Eastern Europe, road tips, Sushi, , the California/Nevada desert, Milan Kundera, pugs, hot sauce, Devo Lucien Freud, Henry Miller, vintage clown paintings, Glen Luchford, Scandinavian Black Metal, etc.”
