James Popsys is a UK based photographer with a great sense of humor, and apparently a strong hate for Kale. On his own site he says “Making the ridiculous images you see on this site is what I love to do…”. When was the last time you met a photographer that didn’t take their own work way to seriously? Such a refreshing attitude, and so is his work.
His shots are born from the thoughts in his head, with nod to the contradictions and irony that exists in everyday life. While I was reading his “About Me” page I kept thinking of a Standup Comedian.
His images run the gamut from placing a sticker in an unusual place, to flipping what you know as “real” completely upside sown. There have only been a few occasions where I have lost track of time looking through a potential guest’s portfolio in search of an image to discuss, and James is one of those.
Join Photographer and Composite Artist James Popsys and me as we discuss his image “Zone 334” – a wonderful combination of the London Underground in the wild. It’s a ride on the Tube on this episode of Behind the Shot.
