Hey, my name is Kedwien (Ked-do-win) Valdez. I’m 16 years old and I went to high school for environmental studies. I am now at Fordham University. I guess I am one of your average guys living in Washington Heights. I love photography because it is the way I express myself and I know this is the typical sentence people use, but it’s the truth. I am not the most athletic person in the world and if you give me a pencil and paper and tell me to draw something I’ll draw you a stick figure, but photography just calls out to me. The idea of capturing a great looking moment and being able to save it and show it off to the world excites me. When looking at pictures in a magazine I like wondering why did they take that picture? What inspires them? I know it sounds really cheesy but that’s who I am. I guess I’m a cheesy person. Well that’s my story. My name is Kedwien Valdez and I love photography!
