About Karl Ford
My pursuit of photography as an expression of art began in 1970 at the age of 21 and in the U.S. Army in Vietnam. Before that, cameras were just toys. While going through my “rite of passage,” I experienced a conscious awakening. I had never seen good photography before, and when I did at this time, it was an epiphany. I knew then that photography would be a big part of my life.
I started out in darkrooms, of course, with chemicals and celluloid. My transition to digital was gradual as the technology improved and is now complete. Although digital is easily manipulated, my approach is to be as objective as possible. I try to stay true to the original visual experience. This approach forces me to look outside of myself instead of dwelling on inner preoccupations.
Although, technically, I'm self-taught, I have a degree in Television Production, which provided employment with industry (Mack Trucks, Inc.) and government (U.S. Dept. of Transportation). My experience with photography proved invaluable while working in this field.
I'm currently living in Florida after living most of my life in northern United States, specifically the Boston area. I sell my work at fairs, through my website, or just word-of-mouth. I believe FAA will give me another venue to display my art and, hopefully, make some money through it.
