For Damon Kidwell, being multi-faceted as a creative means collaborating with the likes of 944 Magazine, V-Moda, Paul Oakenfold, Skingraft, Graffiti Pink and Box Eight. As a Jack of all trades and master of many, Kidwell has become an accomplished fashion and celebrity photographer as well as the mastermind behind the creative agency “71 Design Team.” His participation during LA Fashion Week in 2010 along with Box Eight, received commending reviews including one with Danny Chung from the online magazine The Examiner. Chung declared, “This rare opportunity was a treat that will be hard to top.”
Kidwell’s style of photography is vast, going from profoundly intimate portraits to substantially large scaled pieces. As if his style were contagious, the theatrical qualities of his photography merges itself with the work produced at 71 Design Team.
