Cowboy Kidd (c.b. Kidd) is the non de plume of a Brooklyn-based multi-media artist focusing on portrait, candid, and concert photography. Most of his work emphasizes on the intimacy and emotions of the performer instead of the actual act of performance. He admires many famous photographers such as Irving Penn, Chris Stein, Michael Lavine, Roberta Bayley and Mick Rock Music and film are second passions and contribute a consistent inspiration to their work. The main focus of Kidd's images is to capture vulnerability and intimacy in people, places and things that would not be considered conventional to most. Outside of his personal projects, c.b. Kidd works as a freelance PA and a photographer for non-profits (Garden State Equality, LEAP! NYC), behind the scenes, private clients, and concerts at iconic venues such as Music Hall of Williamsburg, The Town Hall, Brooklyn Steel,Rough Trade, Market Hotel and Mercury Lounge. Recently c.b. Kidd parted ways working as a full-time Studio Technician and Bookings Assistant Be Electric Studios in Bushwick, Brooklyn. When he is not shooting he is playing guitar and bass in New York based bands such as Gesserit, Scout Gillet, and Lily Mao and The Resonators. c.b. Kidd is looking for projects and collaborations in the Tri-State area.
