About me

 

Born in south east London, Kristian Taylor-Wood began his photography career at cult magazine Dazed & Confused working alongside Rankin, Phil Poynter and Deirdre O’Callaghan through the publication’s seminal years. His unconventional outlook, influenced by an unusually eccentric childhood - not least growing up in a converted schoolhouse used for bed and board by Satyananda yogis - allows him to bring a quirky, fun and haunting style to his work that twists and toys with the darker side of life. Formative influences include horror movies American Werewolf in - London, The Shining, Repo Man and Hell Raiser; and the art world of 90s London where Kristian was exposed to the unsurpassable creativity of his sister Sam Taylor-Wood and her YBA contemporaries Tracey Emin, Damien Hirst and Jake and Dinos Chapman. Film influences and his love of movies continue to permeate his work with Kristian describing his greatest influences today as Wes Anderson and the Coen brothers, perhaps explaining his ability to bring a sometimes oddball, sometimes ethereal beauty to even the most unsettling subject matters. Galleries continue to recognise Kristian’s photography as extraordinary and unique and Kristian was recently awarded Australia’s Commercial Photographer of the year at Projections, as judged by Saatchi & Saatchi, ACMP and his peers. Kristian continues to shoot globally recognised brands for some of the biggest advertising agencies and his work has also featured in Rolling Stone, GQ and Vogue to name a few. Kristian’s photographs are recognisable through their strong sense of location, twisted humour, cool cinematic style and the personality he draws out of his subjects.
