“I like to think of what I’m doing as creating a seemingly three-dimensional image through a medium that is fundamentally two-dimensional….” Kitchen analyzes the basics of photography through physical manipulation of the analog proces. Born and raised in San Antonio he grew up between the vast and divers landscapes of Texas. The love for these landscapes became his muse although not in the way one might expect. He deliberately abstained from the idealized representation of landscape and embraced the visual dichotomy of geometric versus organic shapes.
