“Walking between boulevards, at dusk and dawn, searching out whispers, existing in symbiosis with the hustle and bustle of the Paris streets…” – Kit Young
Kit Young was born in 1984. He set out on his photographic journey in 2009 when he moved to France where he joined a group of Paris-based photographers led by Gérard Moulin. It was during this period that Kit began to explore the infinite possibilities of darkroom printing and the juxtaposition of seemingly unrelated moments in time to create visual patterns as part of series-based work.
“While I began taking photographs several years ago, I only started taking the medium of photography seriously when I discovered the hands-on nature of black-and-white film and what are now referred to as ‘traditional’ printing methods. For me, nothing else will do. The four sides of the negative are my point of reference – they enable the viewer to see what I have seen.” – Kit Young
In 2018, Kit worked alongside Bergger Editions in France to publish his first ever book entitled Paris Couplets.
Kit is a member of AllFormat, an international photography collective united by a mutual love of film.
