Kim Keller: In the Streets

Street photography is as old as the portable camera, which was introduced in the 1880s.  Many people would place its heyday in the mid-20th century, with the compelling images of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, Gary Winograd, Lee Friedlander, Helen Levitt, and others.

Some people think of street photography as a practice, akin to mindfulness.  For me, intense observation, the embrace of the here and now, and the revelation of the moment are deeply rewarding.  In the Streets is a collection of the results of my personal practice.  I hope that the images are compelling in themselves and that they also call to the viewer to experience deeply, notice everything, and share.

Kim Keller

Kim is an Olney, MD-based photographer who has been collecting images of street scenes for 20+ years. As a consultant on brief assignments, her camera was a constant companion from Boston to Atlanta. Settling in the DC-Baltimore area, she now explores neighborhoods and annual events more deeply, as well as continuing to travel with her camera.

Kim’s images have been featured in group shows at galleries across the U.S. and abroad.  These include the Torpedo Factory (Alexandria, VA), the Mansion at Strathmore (Bethesda, MD), Viridian Artists (New York, NY), Los Angeles Center for Photography (Los Angeles, CA), Black Box Gallery (Portland, OR), Praxis Gallery (Minneapolis, MN), PhotoPlace Gallery (Middlebury, VT), Blank Wall Gallery (Athens, Greece), and Glasgow Gallery of Photography (Glasgow, Scotland).  Kim has presented Parade Project, a collection of images of public celebration during the pandemic, as a solo show at the Abington Art Center (Jenkintown, PA) and Links Bridge Vineyard (Thurmont, MD).

Kim serves on the board of Exposed DC, an organization that promotes photography in the DC Metro Area, and is involved with several groups and nonprofit galleries.
