Rebecca Villarreal reviews Kenneth Park

Kenneth Park is a large format color landscape photographer, who has photographed all over the world. His process takes anywhere from 5 to 10 days and usually consist of him lugging around camera equipment like Ansel Adams or Eadweard Muybridge. Initially he worked as a field assistant for Eliot Porter, who was known for his color work.

Looking at his work, you can tell that he really does take the time to plan the shot and find the best natural light to get some really amazing photos. All of his colors are rich and vibrant and make you feel as though you are standing in the place you are looking at. He has textures, good compositions, and a really nice eye in general. The amount of detail he gets in each photo just adds to the realism of the photo.

Over all for not really loving landscape photography, Kenneth Park’s photographs have given me a new appreciation for the subject.
