On an early morning winter day after an overnight freeze, I took a walk to the banks of the Potomac in West Virginia and noticed how the ice had formed to create these unique patterns under the frozen river. Closeup there is a feeling of exploring another world.

In 1970 I began my fascination with capturing images that reflect my life experiences and observations. I looked inward and began what became a life-long journey of self-discovery through the creative arts. As a photographer taking pictures was and is a means for me to hold visual moments in time so I might absorb and experience them a little longer. Photography provides me a distinct voice for self-reflection, social commentary, and cultural engagement. I opened a studio and photo gallery, KimoPics, in Shepherdstown WV in 2018.
