About Ken Lee
guess what I like best about photographing in nature is the being there.
Being there in the sense of being fully present or in the moment. As
soon as I put my eye to the camera, I become completely focused on what I
am seeing. All of the normal background noise in my brain; random
thoughts, anxiousness, things I need to do or plan are suddenly gone, if
only temporarily. I'm just there, all there. I try not to romanticize
the experience too much. I believe these sensations are just normal
manifestations of the creative process that we all experience from time
to time. Out in the wild, however, I do feel a deeper sense of
stillness, rightness, connectedness. I'm sure the sheer beauty of my
surroundings, feeling the elements on my skin and so forth all influence
my perceptions. Whatever the reason, I always come away with an
overwhelming sense of gratitude and peace. It's a great feeling and I
hope I can convey some of what I experience through my images.
