I have been an avid follower of Ken Hermann’s work and his latest Photographic Series Explosion 2.0 has only confirmed my enthusiasm.
A little about Ken Hermann
Ken Hermann is a young photographer from Copenhagen, Denmark. He is well known for other projects such as Flower Man, Crash Landed, or Hollywood Street Characters. In this new photographic series, Ken alongside a pyrotechnics expert, uses methodical timing and lighting to capture suspended explosions that seem to hover in the air like clouds. Explosion 2.0 is the second part of an ongoing series from the photographer.
“Ken Hermann’s images are pathways, connecting us to micro worlds and challenging us to rethink ideas of photographic representation. Ken doesn’t worry about trends, staying true to his point of view as an image-maker. It’s exciting to see a young photographer with such a strong singular vision and approach.
Passionate about individuals and their unique histories, he explores the fragile balance between people and their environment, between tradition and modernity. Ken’s photography seamlessly weaves cultural and political content, blending documentary and cinematic portraiture. His application of lighting, combining artificial with natural, takes the images into a surreal space, creating dreamlike visions of everyday people.”
