As a photographer, one of my biggest inspirations has been Kosten. He resides in New York City and has a talent unlike anyone else. At only 18 years old, he is out capturing photos of the forgotten parts of New York. Kosten originally started off doing photography with only his iPhone. It wasn’t until a couple years later when he bought his first digital camera, a Canon 5D Mark II.
Kosten’s photography is mainly based in city at nighttime. He has been an inspiration to me ever since I began shooting photos a couple of years ago. I really enjoy his work because it’s speaks to me more than a professional photographer that captures images that lack uniqueness and originality. Kosten has his own website where people can buy his prints and it amazes me how successful he is at such a young age. Many people over look the art industry today and seeing this gives my hope of my dreams in the field.
