Youthful hedonism and an extreme case of sunburn from Brian Pescador

Palm Springs-based photographer Brian Pescador is leading a double life. By day he makes his living chopping locks and trimming beards as a travelling barber, and by night (also quite often during the day, but presumably when he’s not cutting hair) he’s an incredibly talented photographer. Naturally as a resident of the Coachella Valley, he’s got a wealth of stunning scenery to go out and shoot whenever he sees fit, but the best of his photography marries the people and places of his homeland into an idyllic portrait of youthful hedonism.

This is particularly the case in his personal project Kings of the Canyon, an incredibly honest portrait of a day in the life of good friends sinking beers, swimming and camping in the great outdoors. Shame about the HORRIFIC case of sunburn of course, but we reckon it’s the most striking image of all.
