Kwaku Alston- American celebrity photographer

When did you discover your passion for photography?
My passion for photography started when I was around 14 years old, during a hard time for my family after my uncle had died suddenly. My mother inherited a box of his belongings, and in that box was a 35mm film camera with a set of lenses. Of course I began to tinker with the camera with no appreciation for what a fragile and expensive instrument this was. I ended up taking one of the zoom lenses apart and couldn’t put it back together. My mother discovered this pretty quickly, and I thought she’d be more than a little upset with me. After all, I’d destroyed her brother’s cherished gear. But no, she just said maybe I should take a photography class and learn how to fix that lens and operate that camera. So I listened to mom, and enrolled in a black and white workshop at High School. There was no turning back.
