ak cespedes was born in Lima, Peru in 1975.  Her early life was all about taking pictures and traveling with her family.  Her parents instilled these two passions in her and since then she hasn't stopped.

In 2013, she quit her full time job as a television production manager and let go of her 20 year career in the TV industry. She took off to visit Italy for a month, meeting up with her parents to end the summer touring Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and Hungary.

One year later, ak's work was featured in the July Miami Mixer event which took place at the Eleazar Delgado Studio in Downtown Miami; the Photography Biennale at Vargas Gallery in Pembroke PInes, FL; the Art Fallout in Girls' Club in Ft. Lauderdale, FL; also featured by Marcano/Maldonado Studios during Art Basel; and the Snap to Grid exhibit at LACDA in Los Angeles, CA. She has also donated to art auctions  and volunteered as photo editor for various events benefiting Miami Rescue Mission.

Currently, ak has traveled west and is creating new opportunities for herself. Her first Los Angeles body of work was featured in the May 2016 publication of The Downtowner. This is just the start...
