As a new resident of the island of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, Kevin has been immediately inspired by the luscious landscapes and gorgeous sunsets, a refreshing change from the cityscape of Los Angeles. "Artistically, it's always very exciting to have the chance to view the world from a new perspective. It forces you to grow as an artist in unpredictable ways. Simply put, it pushes you out of your comfort zone, and personally, I find that very exhilarating."
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.
