Tommy Kha “Return to Sender”

Here’s a funny series by photographer Tommy Kha. He is both actor and director in these photos. The series is humorous and contradicting. Looking at these photos I also noticed the very diverse setting for each shot and how it contrasts with Tommy’s consistent pose. I found it to be an interesting approach to self portraiture.

“Return to Sender is a funny photo series by photographer Tommy Kha that takes a unique approach to self-portraiture. Rather than taking a straight-forward image of himself, the Memphis-based photographer presents himself engaged in a one-sided kiss with dozens of strangers in various locales. Funny enough, it’s the other person in each shot that is fully committed to the smooch as Kha stands motionless.”
