Artist of the Day…Kevin Mackintosh

I’ve got a great photographer to share today – the work of Kevin Mackintosh. I am blown away by his subject matter and location use…both of these qualities make his work insanely interesting and immensely striking.

This African native is influenced by art, architecture, interiors, and classical photography and has shot numerous editorials for many high fashion glossies. He’s also done a multitude of ad work for such brands and labels as Kenzo, H&M, & Aveda. I am really impressed because Mackintosh’s work has this almost surreal, hyper-real quality that is an obvious reflection of the vibrancy of his native Africa.

Along with fashion editorials an advertisements, Mackintosh has also held exhibitions around the world.

Stunning, isn’t it? It’s no wonder that The National Portrait Gallery has put images of his work in their permanent collection. Simply beautiful.
