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.

    Hi Kent,

    I’m not exactly sure how I stumbled upon your blog, but I’ve been coming back to it all day. Such an interesting project! I wanted to do something similar for my masters project a couple of years ago, but circumstances didn’t allow it. Your photos are beautiful and I’m very much looking forward to the final product.

    Hi! Liked the documentary about the Rainbow gathering. have u ever heard of the Circle Way – and it’s gatherings? to me this branch of Rainbow movement realy tries to work out the problems from the core by presenting interessting tools how to solve most of the challenges that apear, when people try to do something together nowadays (probably not very different in acient days).
    still it seems to be the greatest challenge for mankind how to live in peace with eachother and all creatures we share this world with.
    and i highly appreciate every single attempt to do so, no matter how strange it might seem.
    wish u the best for you path and may beauty be with you.

    Yes, you know about them? what do you think?

  4. have you been to twin oaks? will you come visit? it is good. it is not nearly gay enough (or queer dykey in my case), but it is more real than what i had in los angeles. my beloved died and i sought out a place to be and to be free. have i found it? close enough, i think. nothing is ever perfect, and i continue to struggle with personalities, but this is a place where i can live with others and feel included and hope to make a difference and live something more meaningful than plastic fantastic los angeles land. come visit if you can. i would like to know your take on it. sometimes good enough may just be good enough.

    • I have been in contact with Twin Oaks about Kat Kinkade footage, I would love to see it someday, I have heard great things.

    Hi there,
    I was wondering if there’s somewhere that I can purchase or view your documentary.
    Please let me know at your earliest convenience.
    Cheers,
    Louise
