CONCEPTUAL BEAUTY, FASHION, & UNDERWATER ADVERTISING PHOTOGRAPHER, KITFOX VALENTíN, BELIEVES IN THE EVOLUTION OF VISION. Compelled to do more than just make a statement, the attraction of photography for Kitfox came from a desire to communicate a concept, and to connect with people on multiple levels. Kitfox's specialties fall into one of two realms which could be described as whimsical and beautifully awkward. In the first, Kitfox believes in creating a connection with viewers through whimsical and relatable visuals. Working to develop and express a client's vision, he finds it very rewarding to work in concept development, as well as creative visual execution, to set a line of visual communication. In the second, Kitfox is moved to challenge viewers within certain realms of his work by presenting the beautiful and the awkward as one. Awkward being any one of several emotional reactions, but in any case, a bit uncomfortable. A light play on morbid fascination. Kitfox does this by implementing conceptually creative scenarios or subjects with impeccable visual design elements and production, that lend to his polished style. As a result, Kitfox produces relevant and eye catching visuals that provoke a visceral response, whether it be fun, exciting, and fantastical, or conflicted, bizarre, and attractively awkward. In a time when the market has never been more saturated with imagery, Kitfox works to elevate standards, communicate concepts, and create collaborations with clients to realize a shared vision, resulting in exceptional and relevant product. He is based between PDX and NYC.
