I recently took a trip across the country on a motorcycle. Brought a camera too… I’m posting many of the images along with stories about the trip in a tumblr. Follow along! http://augustof2011.tumblr.com
This excellent tracking shot was pointed out to us by Damien & Yuta of Sake & Wine after they saw some of the fire photos in ROAD TRIP PA.
In the spirit of KK08 – ROAD TRIP PA, it seems appropriate to explore a little more into the photography plus road-trip connection. here is an image by Inge Morath from The Road to Reno. Check out a bunch more here.

“We Come From the Land of Ice and Snow” is an awesome series of images by Chibi Lai taken in Iceland over the course of two trips there in 2009 and 2010 (with a third possible in the near future..). We love the geology and the atmosphere here. And the way she deals with the [...]
Spomenik is an awesome photo-book (and series of images) documenting archaic monuments in the Balkans (former Yugoslavia) by Antwerp based photographer Jan Kempenaers.
Joel Tettamanti lives in Switzerland.
Kevin Kunstadt has a great new series of images from the Italian Dolomites. In it he depicts the range of playful, extreme, reverential, and absurd activities performed by human visitors against an awe inspiring natural backdrop. check out his site for the full series.
There are a lot of anonymous figures in Alex McTigue’s recent work. As a result the images feel very archetypal. Which is cool! Alex’s zine Anywhere But Here is also available for sale in the K&K store so check that out too.
Sean Marc Lee oscillates seamlessly between the perversely comical and stunningly poignant moment in his extensive body of work. more from him soon…
This image was featured on the cover of the New York Times recently. It depicts members of the Afghan National Police as the break their fast during Ramadan while another soldier provides security cover. It’s a politicized and great take on Manet’s Le déjeuner sur l’herbe. see the full story (and more images from Kandahar) [...]
We’re having a little party at the gallery tonight from 7-10 for the opening of George Underwood’s Old Enough to Know Better, Young Enough to Pretend. Here’s a picture that George took of Kevin and I as we were driving through the middle of Pennsylvania on a photo taking excursion. And afterwards is the picture [...]
We were lucky enough to show an image by this awesome pair of photographers in the KK01 Grand Opening show. Tracey and Frank are two of the most devoted photographers we’ve ever met and have been making amazing pictures for a long time now. They recently spent a year working as long haul drivers, traversing [...]
Recent work by Guillaume Gilbert – a french photographer who was featured in K&K’s 3rd show. We love how the water is rendered in this image as it pours into the sewer (notice the greek coffee cup too); and this night shot of a brooklyn facade is very weegee-esque.
Alan is very thorough in his exploration of his subjects. Whether it be returning to the site of a fire he photographed in the past or the meticulous analyzation of his relationships with the people he photographs- you can tell he’s thinking about what he’s doing. It shows. Lots more on his site.
Photographs taken through the front of a car are almost always good, this one is really good. So are softly backlit interior shots. Bonnie is part of a small group of photographers from NYU (including K&K artists Damien Saatdjian and Yuta Nakajima) who often take trips and shoot together. Her site is here. She’s also [...]
