& News of Note
Journalistic and found-object photography usually mean capturing the now-or-never moments, as I happen upon them—or they upon me.
I've just retired after 30 years of capturing those moments on assignment, or enterprised, for daily and weekly community newspapers. My work has also been featured in numerous publications, including Greenbelt and Eagle magazines.
I’ve been a regular contributor to Idaho Homes and Lifestyle, Farm and Ranch, Explore Idaho, Capital Press and dozens of newspaper special sections.
In my last, favorite iteration as a staffer, I served as a reporter, photo editor and chief photographer for the Teton Valley News on the west side of the Grand Tetons in Driggs, Idaho. Great people, great professionals in a magnificent setting.
Now I've returned to Boise and family, writing and photographing the travel stories of the west. Stop in and visit our blog at KenLevyTravels.Wordpress.com for the latest updates.
My ongoing historical photo-documentary,
Disappearing Legacy: Old Barns of the West, continues to
grow with intimate images of magnificent, antique barns -and the vanishing lifestyles they symbolize.
Many photographs and
are featured in
Barn in the U.S.A. by Bob Crittendon.
Legacy has been in the Top 10 "Barn Photographs" web sites
on Google and Yahoo! since 1998.
Check out Icons: Old Barns of the East, the companion site, for a look at classic barns in Kentucky, Missouri, Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. It includes a collection of Mail Pouch Barn images.
I specialize in on-location photography and editorial packages
telling the stories of the West, for magazines, newspapers and business.
