KEN KIPEN

"Photography has evolved for me as a way to recognize the life of worlds very different from my own. As I travel I look to discover subjects and configurations that, in compelling ways, transcend their time or place.

 

As empathy with chosen subjects is often very strong, desire to do them justice in camera/darkroom work can be counter-productive. But when I let go of all agendas my subjects seem to meet me half-way, and there comes a moment when I suddenly see the finished result and know how to achieve it.  So Ive come to rely on an approach that is open-ended; it begins with a bud of recognition and grows until the subject blossoms out of its own vitality.

 

Ken began his study of darkroom techniques in 1952. Formal study of black & white camera and darkroom techniques with noted photographers, such as Howard Bond, Bruce Barnbaum, and Jerry Uelsmann, have been instrumental in developing his own eye.
