Felton Kizer is a 22 year-old visual artist based in Chicago, Illinois. Felton has been a photographer since 2009, however it was in 2011 when he started to take the craft more seriously. Initially, photography was simply a hobby then his love for craft grew as he evolved and grasped the overall premise. Being that many art forms are permeated with lackluster and mediocre artists, Felton hopes to eventually drive the realm of photography forward with his innate and taught skills. Lately, he has been transitioning into creating more shorts and television based content. He recently photographed Moonlight star, Ashton Sanders for Status Magazine but that’s not the only exciting moment in his colourful career.
I just want them to know that I’m a great photographer.
Being a Chicago native, Felton spoke briefly about the inner city crime rate hysteria. He chatted about how there’s often dialogue centered around the obvious matter, however those highlighting the issue rarely lend a hand to assist the problem.
