Ken Rosenthal's photographs reflect on the strands of memory retained from the dream state as manifested in portraits of family and strangers, landscapes, animal imagery, and other familiar yet ambiguous scenes. The images engage an underlying tension between the often mundane subject matter and its unearthly manifestation, allowing the work to appear both simultaneously grounded and ethereal.Ken Rosenthal was born in the Los Angeles area and now works out of Tucson, Arizona. He received a BA in Photography from USC and then an MFA from the Art Institute of Chicago. Initially exhibiting locally in Tucson, he has since gone on to display his work in both group and solo shows around the country. His photographs are included in the collections in the George Eastman House, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the National Portrait Gallery in London, and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. His artwork was also used extensively in the 2005 Fox Searchlight production of Bee Season.
