On July 4th, 2011 Kevin Young's life unexpectedly changed forever, and what started as a fun day with friends at the beach ended up being a horror story for this very young photographer. At the time, Kevin was very busy working on few different projects but his friend convinced him to take a break and have a nice day outside with few friends. When Kevin jumped to the water to swim he broke three vertebrae in his spine and instantly became paralyzed from the neck down.
Kevin Young is a very talented architecture and portrait photographer based in San Diego, California. When he took few hours off work to go hang out with friends on a boat, he never believed he will end up spending the next few years in the hospital and in physiotherapy sessions, but that's what happened. He had to learn how to walk again and even how to use his hands.
In this very moving interview, Kevin shares how photography helped him recover and get some balance in his life. And how photography was his way to pay back to the person who saved him on that horrible day back in 2011.
