Vancouver-based bag brand Taikan has just revealed the latest installment of its TAIKAN BY series, an ongoing series that pairs up creatives with the bag of their choice and allows them to express their own style while showcasing the product. This time, Taikan has tapped 22-year-old Mescondi to highlight the new Mesh Collection in a series of images that incorporates the young photographer's vibrant aesthetic and cheeky use of props.

"A lot of my inspiration comes from cinema," Mescondi says of his signature style. "Movies and the escape to an alternate reality they provided, was a huge part of my youth. The perspective comes from wanting to create that cinematic feel. Each subject or model I work with becomes a character in my mind, and I am shooting that character. The character determines the mood of the shoot. The mood or colours used are also often determined by my mental state."
