Working in muted tones and a minimal style, Kirkwood’s lens focusses on classic Californian motifs: skaters, basketballers, vintage cars and neon motel signs, complemented by candid portraits of locals taking it easy.


A statement about his series – entitled ‘Americana’ – states: “With a subtle color palette in mind, Kirkwood portrays landscapes and people in perfect harmony.”


Based in Northern England, Kirkwood completed studied commercial photographic practice at Newcastle College, and has since become an accomplished advertising photographer.
