Victor Van Keuren has been photographing worldwide since 1974. He has lived and photographed in Alaska and Northern Canada from 1980-1988. He also lived and worked in coastal Maine from 1995-2008. He has photographed a wide variety of subjects from National Parks to urban portraits and architecture. While living in Rochester, New York he learned to work with large format cameras and platinum printing and dye-transfer techniques. He also studied and worked at the famed Rochester Institute of Technology and the Kodak laboratories. In Rochester, the George Eastman Museum allowed him many opportunities for exposure to the masters of photography. It was here he discovered the imagery of his biggest influences such as Edward Weston, Paul Caponigro, Minor White and Jerry Uelsmann.

“I have always been drawn to the relationship of the Micro/Macro in the natural world”, “My imagery is taking on a psychological aspect that is free from scale and leaves the viewer the space for personal interpretation”

 

Van Keuren now divides his time between the Southwest United States and Dusseldorf, Germany. His most current projects include working in Glen Canyon National Recreation area for a 12 day artist in residence in October 2019. .
