"Light is my pigment and the camera is my canvas. My passion is recording light eloquently—manipulating it at the time of photography then enhancing it for display on the print. Light and the subjects it illuminates are infinitely fascinating.” For more information about Kevin and to see more of his work, please visit his website at www.amesphoto.com
