About the Artwork
In every encounter there is a dialogue without words creating an understated, engaging, direct yet vulnerable sense of each person. Behind the outcome of the work is the interest of people and, through them, of trends, movements, protests, individual and group dynamics that are part of our being human.
In Ken’s portraits collection, he takes the audience on a journey back to the brief moment, where his eyes met with those portrayed, in some ways acting as a conduit while at the same time finding a way of preventing himself from being an obstruction to the audience. By experiencing the same intimate face-to-face encounters through the photographs in a display, the audience has the chance to engage in a similar yet new dialogue with the faces of the people standing before them.
