Johnnie Shand Kydd (1959-), Photographer

Sitter in 1 portrait
Artist of 64 portraits
After working at a Bond Street Gallery selling 19th Century paintings for a number of years Shand Kydd began taking photographs of his artist friends and those in his social sphere. As a participant rather than solely an observer he captured the community of YBA's (Young British Artists) before they became household names. From March 1996 until July 1997 he photographed the contents of the book Spitfire (Thames & Hudson, 1997) and went onto photograph the artists featured in the Sensation show at the Royal Academy in 1997. From this portfolio the National Portrait Gallery acquired 42 prints through Sadie Coles who represents Shand Kydd along with some of the artists that he photographs.
