Kento (#622) 08-10-14

I paid a visit to the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts, in Tampa. See it HERE. Kento was manning the front desk. His appearance immediately interested me and I let him know. He had no reservation about being photographed.

Kento was born in Japan and came to the U.S. During elementary school. He has no accent – none. Kento is now a junior at the nearby University of South Florida, majoring in photography. Although keeping his options open, Kento is drawn to fashion photography.

I said that with my interest in portraiture and his in fashion photography, we had a natural common hero, Richard Avedon. Kento had heard of Avedon just the previous month, and was currently reading about him.
