Born in the American Southwest in 1985, Colby Vincent Edwards is a photographer whos work seeks to capture the adventures, late nights and sometimes gritty nature of modern youth.

If you could only shoot one subject matter for the rest of your life: If i was limited to shooting one subject for the rest of my life… hands down i would just document my friends and our adventures. Its my favorite thing to shoot, and always an excuse to pack a bag and get out of town.
The one camera for the rest of your life would be: Damn thats a tough one. If i’m lucky enough to shoot film forever, I would have to go with my Contax T2. Its the only camera I keep buying after I break it, and I’m on number 6. I’ll admit, I’m a big fan of auto-focus and auto-exposure. And Its small enough to always be in my back pocket.
My sketchiest experience behind the lens was: I don’t really have ONE experience that stands out, It’s more like an entire two years where I was making a lot of sketchy photographs. But there was definitely a lot of abandoned buildings, smashed windows, shooting guns in city limits, graffiti, and great times. Maybe one time we hid from a helicopter. 😉
