Kent Kessinger was born in Akron, Ohio and was raised by a pack of women where he learned to be courteous, kind and respectful. Being an army brat he moved all over the states and into Germany where is ancestors had left so long ago. His family settled around Durham, North Carolina eventually and he learned to appreciate nature.
At about the age of 14 he picked up a camera and has been fascinated with it ever since. He worked for several papers during college and upon graduating he became the chief photographer of the Appalachian Voices. After a couple years of roaming around the mountains his feet got eager and he set off to make documentaries.
He is currently writing about himself in the third person in a coffeeshop in San Francisco’s grimy step-child, the Tenderloin.
