Trophies, 2013

Trophies by Kenneth Hayden, Louisville, KY USA

I came across this scene while photographing in downtown Louisville last weekend. There is a lot of construction taking place with new a new bridge being built to cross the Ohio River. The static nature of the trophy heads seemed in direct conflict to all the activity and progress swirling around in the area. Available in a limited edition of 10 (ten) 30×40″ archival prints on paper or aluminum. Larger sizes on request.

Portal

Portal, from Block Series, 2012, Kenneth E. Hayden (photography)

Portal, 2012 is from an ongoing series of images I see when simply walking the city block where I live. Sounds easy enough. However, I force myself to only create images of shape, shadow and texture that to me have an undefinable sense of urgency. They have to be created there and then. Otherwise, how would anyone else know that those moments ever existed? Continue reading

The Incinerator

from Refuge, Incinerator, 2012 “I made a trip to my boyhood home to visit family in rural Kentucky this past weekend. You never know what will make an impression on you. This is where we’d burn our trash. It’s taken on different construction, size and shape over time. But the placement and use are still the same 50+ years later. Nostalgic yet strange.” ©2012 Kenneth E. Hayden

30″ x 20″ archival inkjet print, Edition 5
Also available as dye sublimation on aluminum

The “Florida Safari” series is a fabricated historical account of the past. Over time, facts can be distorted or reinvented to suit the needs of the present. Documentary photographers can manipulate their reporting in such ways as isolating persons in a crowd, choosing selective lighting or a particular lens to demonstrate their own creative visions and versions of history. Through contemporary photographs I create a past that never happened. Emulating the lower technology of early photographic equipment, materials and vision, I present fabrications of exploration and discovery while injecting elements available only through today’s computers and advanced cameras and lenses that hint at the false narratives presented.
