Billy Kidd, 1980 | Fine art Photographer



Billy Kidd is an American self-taught photographer born in Panama City, Florida.

- "When I was six years old we sold everything in a garage sale.
I made an impressive $20 selling my He-Man action figures, Castle of Grayskull, G.I. Joe's and every little thing I had.
I thought it would be fun to put my money in a small wooden box and bury it with a long white string tied to it coming out of the dirt, it would be my buried treasure. I never found the money".


"We weaved around the US from state to state in an RV. I slept above the driver seat, in a loft style bed, which I thought was the coolest thing.
Towards the end of our journey we went through Death Valley. Running around in Scooby-doo underwear, it was hot, a bag of ice cost us $3.49 in 1987.
We settled down in Scottsdale, AZ".

Billy Kidd è un fotografo autodidatta Americano nato a Panama City, in Florida.
- "Quando avevo sei anni vendemmo tutto in una vendita di garage. Ho guadagnato ben 20 $ vendendo le mie action figure di He-Man, Castle of Grayskull, G.I. Joe ed ogni piccola cosa che avevo.
Ho pensato che sarebbe stato divertente mettere i miei soldi in una piccola scatola di legno e seppellirli con un lungo filo bianco legato ad esso che usciva dallo sporco, sarebbe stato il mio tesoro sepolto.
Non ho mai trovato i soldi.
Abbiamo viaggiato negli Stati Uniti da stato a stato in un camper.
Ho dormito sopra il sedile del conducente, in un letto a soppalco, che pensavo fosse la cosa più bella.
Verso la fine del nostro viaggio abbiamo attraversato la Death Valley.
Andando in giro in mutande Scooby-doo, faceva caldo, una borsa del ghiaccio ci è costata $ 3,49 nel 1987. Ci siamo stabiliti a Scottsdale, in Arizona".
