Ken Schwartzman’s background is not in Fine Arts. He spent his career as a performing musician and Music educator, and holds a Bachelor of Music degree (Juilliard School), Master’s degree in Humanities (Adelphi University), and a P.D. in Educational Administration (Long Island University). However, since his late teens, a camera has been his constant companion. The enhanced ability to see that the camera brings to people, places, and things has been a lifelong attraction. Many of his photographs, done purely as an avocation, have for many years appeared in dancers’ and models’ portfolios, and on their websites. Other works are in private collections. Ken does not do any “post-production” to his images, although a few elements of “pre-production” are practiced: use of filters, camera conversions to black and white and sepia, etc. Since relocating to Carlisle, Pennsylvania, he has joined several local galleries and art learning centers. His work has been shown at the Art Center in Mechanicsburg, CALC, Lancaster County Arts Association, York Art Association, and Hanover Art Guild. He has won awards for his work in Lancaster, York, and Hanover Art Galleries, as well as being accepted into several regional juried shows.
