    Kimi Selfridge: This is Our Youth

Kimi Selfridge's beautiful images take instant photography to a whole new level

Posted by James Cartwright,

There’s a universal truth that beautiful adolescents in vintage clothing make for excellent photographs. It’s a tried and tested recipe for success. So what makes Kimi Selfridge’s shots stand out from her peers and their equally gorgeous friends? Well for one thing her personal preference is for instant photography, in particular Fuji Instax, which means every one of her photographs is one of a kind. It’s a difficult job to make instant film yield consistently strong results but Kimi rises to the challenge admirably. She’s also got a natural eye for composition, framing her leggy subjects in their surroundings with genuine flair.

And it doesn’t stop there. Kimi’s also pretty fond of working into her original photographs with paint, found imagery and hand-scrawled text to create witty and engaging collages. We’re particularly fond of her declaration of love for ex-president Abraham Lincoln. Who can resist a man with a full Amish beard?
