Passion, Patience and Persistance

“Kaleidoscope #1,” Grimes Glenn stream reflection

Nigel Peter Kent was born in England, and his passion for photography became apparent at the age of 14. He learned much about taking photographs by reading, experimenting with his camera, hitchhiking through Europe and photographing back-street scenes before moving to Rochester at age 21.

His work has been exhibited in many local galleries. He currently has three ongoing exhibits in Pittsford Place Mall, the Mill Art Center in Honeoye Falls and most recently, in Robeson’s East of Eden in Vine Valley.

Nigel is active with the Genesee Land Trust and the Finger Lakes Land Trust, helping to preserve wild lands that are a frequent subject of his photography. He can be found in these remote places with his English Springer Spaniel, Molly, who waits while Nigel practices “Passion, Patience and Persistence,” the traits that make his photography particularly appealing.

His creative passion extends to writing as well as photography, and some examples of his poetry and short stories illustrated with his own photographs can be seen on his website.
