Kevin Shick is a fine art photographer whose work explores the human condition and the contemporary American experience. By observing the public and private spaces where our interaction with each other and with the environment occurs, he aims to reveal our collective contemporary culture and individual states of mind.
He got started in photography over 40 years ago by developing and printing family portraits in a wet darkroom, and by exploring nature with an Argus Rangefinder during family trips to Yosemite and the Sierras. Since then he has continued to study the juxtaposed urban and natural landscapes, seeking situations where light and moment come together to reveal insights about human nature.
Kevin has a degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois, and an MBA from the University of Chicago. Following a career in technology and consulting, he now pursues a photographic life.
His work has been exhibited and published nationally, and is included in several private collections. He lives most of the year near the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, traveling frequently with his wife in their RV.
