My name is Fred Byrd, but you can call me Freddy. I am a curious, 21-year-old fine art photographer, hardcore optimist, spotty writer and overall good friend. I currently live in Kansas City and enjoy the idea of travelling by train. I prefer TFP for local shoots. Nice to meet you.
Artist Statement: "My photos are like surrealistic pages of a journal, half-written, only truly satisfying within moments of its conception, small doses of escape for an otherwise misguided mind. I glimpse into the ordinary life of youth, recounting the impact that one moment in time has on a person’s world. Water is a reoccurring theme in my work, often used for purification, healing and the discovery of my own escape – the idea of something so fluid and vital for the continuation of life captivated me. I want people to react by tapping into unobserved memories, desires and insecurities and how powerful of a therapeutic experience these pieces take on."
