Mountains, Forests and Ocean Shores
Kim Keever's large-scale photographs are created by meticulously constructing miniature topographies in a 200-gallon tank, which is then filled with water. These dioramas of fictitious environments are brought to life with colored lights and the dispersal of pigment, producing ephemeral atmospheres that he must quickly capture with his large-format camera. A combination of the real and the imaginary, they document places that somehow we know, but never were.
Kim Keever lives in New York City, and has exhibited extensively in galleries throughout the United States and abroad. Keever is a graduate of Old Dominion University where he earned an engineering degree.
