Ken Van Sickle

Ken Van Sickle's photographs seem like old friends; they make me imagine what it would be like to stay up late in Parisian cafes in the mid-1950's, or to spend time in Warhol's New York studio in the early 1960's. As painting student in Paris, Van Sickle didn't have much money for film, so he used daytime film at night and only took one or two shots of a particular subject in order to stretch the roll. He was able to capture many of these moments on the first take. The pictures were a super joy to view in person when we met this past fall, and so we decided build him a new website where you can view the works as well:
