RESTYLED DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY
Born in the 40's, but a child of the 60's, Ken Kuzia has since reshaped his perspective on art as frequently as he has changed his media. He has progressed through stages of drawing, painting, sculpture, wood-working, and has arrived at digital photography and videography. Who knows what's next!
Aside from the visual arts, Ken flirts with writing based upon his experiences growing up in the southern tier of New York State and migrating to the Finger Lakes region. Sometimes, Ken's eye is captured by the world around him with a high degree of realism, although he seldom can leave well enough alone. Other times he sees the world through abstract terms that may or may not have much basis in reality.
Feel free to wander through his images and see the world through his usual optimism portrayed through vibrant colors and his own take on things - sometimes the world would look a bit better if we could change our glasses and see the world with a different texture and more color and imagination.
Books Ken Illustrated & Edited
I illustrated and edited a novel entitled "Village Secrets" by Rand Gee. It's a series of short stories about the residents of the small resort town of Opine, Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Michigan. The scenes that illustrate the fictitious town are re-styled images I have photographed from my hometown of Victor, NY with a couple of images from the nearby towns of Pittsford and East Rochester. I have also included full-color copies of the village buildings on the VICTOR VILLAGE page on this web site. Feel free to take a look.A panorama of the Victor Village decorates the front, spine, and back covers of the book.
I recently edited and created an augmented cover illustration for Rand's latest work, "Forgotten Mines & Coal Towns of Thoms Run."
For a quick chuckle, check out Rand's book, "Palindromes, Paraprosdokians, and Posters."
by Dorothy Dupere-Kuzia - The book is the story of Dorothy's trials and successes growing up in Michigan.
All books are available at lulu.com.
