Ken – The Artist

1.) "Film REvisited" – The 'HERO' is a 1942 Royal Enfield Motorcycle (RE), sometimes seen as the hero or, understated and difficult to find in the picture: Shot with 135mm B&W KODAK Film. Delivering wetlab Silver-Gelatin, limited-edition handprints for both exhibition and sales.

5.) 'Cycle–Speed': Full-colour images achieved by 'slow-shutter-speeds' while 'tracking & whip-panning' cyclists during a road race through the streets of Cape Town. (The Cape Argus Cycle-Tour 2019.)

Technical:
I utilise the ProPhoto AirS Lighting System to achieve desired 'working-apertures' and as 'fill-in'. I often apply B&White Lee Filters for visual FX. Prime Lenses are a must for all photography.

* All photographic details are pencilled on the reverse of each handprint.
* Limited editions are autographed and numbered from, 1–5.
* Each fine-art handprint displays my unique emboss mark.

My fine-art collections are exhibited both locally and abroad…
