Most recently, Kevin has shifted his creative focus to his photography. Shooting predominantly in B&W, Kevin’s work focuses on what he describes as ‘architectural street photography’, and a little portraiture as well. “I try to find moments of ordinary life taking place in the context of strong architectural elements. In contrast, I also love exploring the intimacy and connection to a subject that portraiture offers. It’s very therapeutic.”
Kevin is a member of Stolen Echoes (stolenechoes.com), a photography collective that encourages creative exploration and discovery. He also serves as curator @streetfinder, a street photography hub on Instagram.
