This is my first photo essay for my program at the Corcoran. Meet Kelvin, a young man in D.C. from Oakland, California. In and out of foster homes up and down the California coast, Kelvin claims to have earned all the credits for a high school diploma, but was never issued one despite protestations. He is attempting to earn his degree and battle education in a pending court case.
Kelvin is an arresting individual, and I hope to continue to work with him and embellish his story.
