Bio
Ken Hochfeld is a Portland based photographer where he and his wife, Carol, have lived for more than 40 years.  He is best known for his documentary work and for his quiet and expressive landscapes.  He is currently working on a photo documentary titled "Small Communities of the Lower Columbia River", as well as four separate collaborations with artist friends.  He finds the natural beauty and lifestyle of the Pacific Northwest emotionally sustaining.  His special visits to common natural places most often include making photographs which he hopes convey to viewers a small part of what he takes home.  His work has been exhibited in various galleries in Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Utah, Texas, Vermont, and California.

Education:
California State University Fullerton
1968-1973
BA Photo Communications with a minor in Art

Statement
I would describe myself as a "mindful" and emotional photographer.  I value my time capturing photographs as an opportunity to be intuitive and introspective while comfortably alone.  I visit common places which become very special to me.  My landscape images, however, are rarely about the places I visit.  The photographs I make are personally contemplative, most often enigmatic, and thus become a general reflection of my personal psyche.
