This week’s stunning image is from 24-year-old Barbadian photographer Jaryd Niles-Morris. Not only do we love the concept of this photo, the post-production editing is truly first class.
Jaryd is the owner of 540i in Barbados. Even though he studied photography in art school, his mother’s enthusiasm for photography had him hooked at an early age. He also credits fellow Barbadian photographer Joel Brooks for helping him to develop his skill over the years, having learned about photo editing through Brooks and ‘trial and error… and the internet!’
He is inspired by pop culture, art, music, the old and the new – ‘It’s difficult to put what inspires me into a few words’ – but describes his photographic style as ‘epic, larger than life… because that’s what I’d like to convey when I photograph someone – that feeling that this has got to be somebody.’
