Kennan Harvey
"Great things are done when man and mountain meet." William Blake

Kennan Harvey is an extreme adventure specialist. His career began during a random mentorship with renowned nature photographer Pat O'Hara and he received early accolades when American Photo selected his image for a cover in 1991. He has traveled extensively throughout the world, pursuing personal expeditions, advertising assignments, and artistic photojournalism of both high adrenaline sports and adventure travel. His work is represented by Getty Images as well as numerous editorial and advertising clients including REI, Patagonia, Black Diamond, Climbing Magazine, Outside, and Hooked on the Outdoors.

"Dramatic wildness is a primary theme within my favorite pictures," Kennan comments. "I want people to stop to take a second look, and a third, just like I do while witnessing such beauty first hand. Only then will a photo have lasting impact and inspiration."

Kennan now lives in Durango, Colorado, settling there after a through, comparative search. "My showing at Open Shutter Gallery is one way I can display my favorite images and hopefully inspire this very talented and motivated community."
