Ken Harris Featured Photographer
Soft Screams Magazine featured photographer
Collection: “The Christian Aragon Collection”
Ken Harris pulled off the impossible with his collection. Ken Harris sent me one gorgeous woman, being a gorgeous woman, in gorgeous nudity, bathing in gorgeous natural sunlight. Ken Harris had the vision and love for the artistry of photography to step back from the dodging, and burning, and pixel manipulations to create Fine Art nudity. The way it all started for all of us. Ken Harris calls his collection “Morning” as he takes us through the metaphoric transformation of a woman named Zoe West as she frees herself from the encumbrance of clothing and sheds her shield of modern conformity. Ken Harris does an excellent job of capturing Zoe’s alabaster skin in its natural beauty in this natural light. Ken Harris used his love for artistic expression to capture a young woman’s beauty, her seductiveness and most importantly, he captured her vulnerability.
Please share with the thousands of other photographers who are going to see this collection what makes your artistry so unique?
“There’s nothing particularly unique about what I do. All I can say is pick your models well and you get what you pay for.”
Could you please share with us one hint on what you did to make this collection so special?
“I really don’t do anything special. I look for good light, and I look for a picture that I find interesting and then I shoot it; I rely heavily on the model’s own creative instincts.”
We recently saw an op-ed piece that you authored, educating models on the importance of a strong portfolio. Do you believe that the quality of work that photographers and models create has diminished? If so, why? If you disagree why?
“No, it hasn’t diminished. There will always be a load of crap and there will always be a load of work much better than mine. The problem with the load of crap is that no one says anything about it. This is so strange to me. What part of the art world is criticism considered a bad thing? People’s feelings are too fragile. There are so many hobbyists supported by a lot of people with equally bad taste. There’s a lot of room for experimentation and pushing the expectations of convention, but not everything is good”
