Photography by Michelle Kilfeather
Marcell Turner found his home in San Francisco.
In Part 1, the photographer shares the story of his childhood in Southern California. He skateboarded, loved punk rock music, and breakdanced in his teen years. Then, a road trip up north with a friend was all it took for Marcell to relocate up to the Bay Area.
In Part 2, Marcell talks about work he almost got before landing a dream job. Marcell shares the story of how he got started taking pictures when he was a kid.
He goes on to talk about people's reaction to his art over the years and the film he's in the process of making about his life as a Black father, photographer, father, and yes, filmmaker.
Please visit Marcell's site and be sure to check out all the photos and videos he's collected there, of the Bay Area and other parts of the country and the world.
He ends the podcast talking about why he left San Francisco to live in the East Bay and his hopes for The City moving forward.
