Ken Rosenthal's work truly knocked the breath out of me the first time I saw it. Even looking at it for the tenth, twentieth time, my heart skips a beat looking at his work. I found Ken Rosenthal through mutual followers on Instagram and I am so glad I did. I have never really seen anyone photograph children how he does. His photographs look as if they are from the early 1900's, but also appear incredibly modern at the same time. His photos of humans vs photos of nature are so different that it is almost questionable if they are both his. While the work of the children and women have a very foggy film over them and appear as if they were taken on a pinhole camera, his photos of nature are so sharp in contrast to the portraits. I love that his different bodies of work are so different, though. He really shows that he knows how to photograph in such different ways and I find that really admirable.
