Maui Guide

Maui Artist Bio: Kenn Briner

Medium: Photography.

Technique:
I use only existing light and approach my photography in a non-intrusive way. I look at life a few feet at a time. I lean toward sculptural and “form”-based subjects. I look for hidden works of art produced by nature.

Inspiration:
I am heavily influenced by many mid-20th century masters such as Minor White, Paul Strand, and Edward Weston.

Philosophy:
Art is all around us, many times in close proximity, but sometimes in unexpected places. I try to see “outside the box” of conventional perception. Photography has had a profound affect on my way of life. I am infinitely more in tune with my surroundings as a result.

Art Background:
Lifelong artist in various mediums. A professed inspiration junkie. Recent solo exhibitions in Italy, Germany and Switzerland.

Birthplace:
Rochester, New York.

Migration to Maui:
Los Angeles, 1995.

Education:
Formal musical training, self-taught in the field of photography.

Hobbies:
Surfing, reading, writing music, exploring uncharted areas (literally and figuratively).

Memberships:
Lahaina Arts Society – Board of Directors.
