The Ken Duncan Story
In a 2007 segment on TV’s “A Current Affair” Ken Duncan was described as ‘definitely one of Australia’s most iconic image makers.’
By a leading American gallery Ken was dubbed, ‘the Ansel Adams of colour photography’ – a high compliment indeed.
Australian Professional Photography Magazine described him as ‘the photographer who is now undoubtedly Australia’s (and possibly the world’s) leading exponent of panoramic landscape photography …’
There have been hundreds of outstanding commentaries on his work by renowned arts and media professionals throughout the world. But Ken describes himself simply as “an average photographer with a great God”. Obviously God has given him a great gift to capture and present the splendour of His creation.
Ken was the photographer chosen by Mel Gibson to shoot on the set of his epic movie “The Passion of the Christ”.
Well known as one of the pioneers of the rebirth of panoramic photography, Ken now has many people trying to imitate his style. He is an originator – not an imitator – which is why his work is so sought after by collectors. Ken was one of the first to promote photography as an art form in Australia and was granted an Honorary Fellowship from the Australian Institute of Professional Photography in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the industry. He was honoured to be awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) by the Australian government for his services to publishing and the arts. Ken was also awarded the photographic industry’s highest honour – the Photo Imaging Council of Australia’s Gold Tripod award. Since establishing his own publishing company in 1992, he has published in excess of 50 individual photographic titles, and sold over 2 million copies of his books world-wide.
Considered a master in his field of photography, Ken has won numerous awards both nationally and internationally for his images and publications. His images and captivating stories have appeared in many prestigious magazines such as National Geographic and Rolling Stone. He has worked with prominent advertising agencies on international accounts and directly with major corporations such as Bank of America, American Airlines, Qantas, Fuji Film and many more.
It’s this amazing diversity that has given Ken Duncan such great recognition.
