Ken Hermann

Ken Hermann

Ken Hermann is based in Copenhagen. He loves to travel and explore remote cultures. His images are pathways, connecting us to micro worlds and challenging us to rethink ideas of photographic representation. Ken doesn’t worry about trends, he stays true to his point of view as an image-maker.

A Hasselblad Masters winner, Ken has shot an eclectic array of campaigns – for automotive and manufacturing through to alcohol and fashion brands.

Passionate about individuals and their unique histories, he likes to examine the fragile balance between people and their environment, between tradition and modernity. Ken’s photography seamlessly weaves cultural and political content, blending documentary and cinematic portraiture. His application of lighting, combining artificial with natural, takes the images into a surreal space, creating dreamlike visions of everyday people.

Ken’s monograph The Beauty of the Omo Valley is a homage to an area of Ethiopia known as the cradle of mankind.
