Their Eyes Were Watching St. John. By Kayden Richards.

A book of beautiful fine art photographs of St. John by Kayden Richards including poems by him and friends. 8.5"x11"


Kayden Richards is an ancestral native Virgin Islander from St. John. Fascinated with animals and nature, he grew up watching hours of Animal Planet, nature documentaries, and looking up to his grandfather, Alva Richards who was pretty much an animal whisperer. Kayden graduated high school in 2016 in Georgia with little to no idea what he wanted to do or be aside from that it would have to be nature and animal related. On moving back home to St. John, he worked at the Animal Care Center and saved up to buy his first camera, a Canon Rebel t6. As soon as he picked up that camera he knew what his main subject matter would be. Kayden has been on a bumpy, self awakening, beautiful journey since. As Photographer-In-Residence at Friends he is working on developing solo creative projects and honing his skills as well as providing photographic support to Friends programs and events.  Learn more about this program here.
