Kind words from photographers

Carlos Caicedo

I appreciate your tireless search. Your constant exploration. And I hope people understand that there's something else to see beyond the simple object or the obvious shape.

You see the world with different eyes. I salute you for that.

It goes without saying that I feel that you have a great eye and imagination – I have ‘followed' you from the first images I saw from you; but I will say that I am at times in awe of what you find and how you see it.

I have come to find much meaning in your images in the past. I also know that you tend to impart much meaning to your images as well. That meaning may be lost on some and a viewer's take may differ from yours but one thing I find fascinating in your images is that they do incite my imagination and give me pause to think - abstractly, philosophically, and technically; and they always make me wonder. :)

I so enjoy the harmony and rhythm that you create in your images through your use of natural and man-made pattern – it is almost musical.

I am inspired and in awe!… There is no limit to your imagination and creativity, Ken! When I look at your photos I am 5 years old again, opening a gift under the Christmas tree.

How does one take an entire universe and place it into a camera sensor? Watch Ken work. I think your internal lens keeps expanding and what you create is a nourishing meal for the soul.

As I continue to study your fine work, I am increasingly curious about ways to use my camera to open silent doors to dark rooms. In this area, you are a pathfinder, Ken.

(And, finally, Tony's very kind metaphor after I mentioned that 'My photography is an attempt to find the overlap in the internal and external worlds.'):

A long time ago I went on a night hike with my wife and about 30 others. The leader, who was a naturalist, paused on the trail several times to point out the places where there was great variance of temperatures along the path and showed us how life was richer and more varied at the point where two ecosystems meet. I recall having a profound sense of wonder when I explored these areas and saw the wonderful plants, flowers and insects that lived there. This same sense of wonder comes forward when I study your photos, Ken. I believe you are a photographic 'naturalist'.

Susy Kamber

All your work is incredible! Each piece has meaning and an interpretation representing the concept. You have a most unique eye and sense of how to do this.

When I was a little girl I started noticing that I would see things in things… similar to what happens when one looks at cloud formations. Our brains do this, yet your work suggests this and much more. It is highly stylized and comes forth from what you see and you bring thoughts and ideas along. There is a strength of meaning beyond the image but it originates in what you see, in what can be seen. You have highly developed your brain's desire to make another sense. I am thinking a new genre of photography because you're revealing a whole new angle.

Tom Dailey

There's so much here to like, Ken. The well-composed simplicity, for one thing. And the way each photo encourages the viewer to see familiar objects from a new perspective. Much enjoyed!

Tom Dailey • Ajijic, Jalisco, Washington, Mexico

Stuart Allen

It is a pleasure to be one of [your] followers Ken. I love your abstract images.

Stuart Allen • Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK

Doris Tasarek

Ken, there must be a kind of magic carpet inside of you that makes you travel on a cloud of fantasy to notice and capture such mysteries – awe-inspiring !!

Your artwork is kind of a perfect synthesis composed of the visual presentation and the meaning you are attributing to it by the choice of your titles. I love it how you let us witness your deep involvement and your thought-process.

Doris Tasarek • Trier, Germany

Anders James

I looked once at this picture among 'following' and thought to my self – 'That must be a Ken Lambrecht.' – which often happens. You have your very own unique style, which is relatively rare… actually

Murielle Hamilton

It's one of my favorite moments of the day: let's see if I can guess what Ken photographed this time without looking at the tags.

You have this rare ability to look at a bunch of 'junk' and see the one detail in it that really matters and will make a great picture.

Murielle Hamilton • Santa Monica, California, USA

Harrie van der Werf

You must have a huge world, seeing so [many] details.

Armin Gierer

Ken, the juxtaposition of your different pattern portraits in your gallery makes each single one even more striking!

I do enjoy your very sophisticated discussions with your friends almost as much as I keep contemplating your images. Such an intellectual inspiration. THANK you!

Armin Gierer • Switzerland

Jacquemo

Ken, your imagination and creativity never ceases to amaze me. Every time I see one of your abstracts I immediately know it is yours. You are so creative. Your insights into the abstract around us all is so very impressive.

Ken, you have such a unique eye. I understand your mind when I read the title, then I understand 'only Ken' sees things in this way... and I love it. You are really brave to expose your true self by exposing your abstracts that frankly I think not as many people appreciate them as should.

I look at your image, I check the title, and somehow the world glues into something that has meaning. You have an eye like no other on 500px.

Franck Pigache

So much platitude on some profiles that yours is a breath of fresh air and a real source of inspiration. A sharp look at what surrounds us and the art of isolating even the smallest details into beautiful and detailed compositions. An art of vision and a poetics of the world and objects.
