Kent Avenue Interview Series: Kirk Edwards

Kirk Edwards is a Brooklyn-based photographer whose schedule often takes him far afield for international fashion and commercial work. Raised in Iowa, he earned a business degree there, before changing course to a successful photography career in New York City. He gained experience as an assistant to photographers such as Jorg Badura, Steven Klein, and Mark Seliger, before forging his own solo career. For the past decade, he has lived and worked out of the apartments at 475 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg—part of a younger generation in the building's renowned photographic community that Nomadic Press has chronicled in this series. Among the topics Edwards discussed was his recent work with musician Mr. Hudson, photographing the Sundance Film Festival, magazine shoots with athletes, and a personal project inspired by his wife's talent for hula dancing.
