Kerik Kouklis – Photo Wesley Thornberry

Kerik Kouklis

Kerik is no stranger to Photostock, but this year is special. Many of you know Kerik has made a couple of excursions into Mongolia in cooperation with The Mongol Ecology. Well, his recent trip was in winter and his imagery is spectacular and he will be sharing his experience and photographs with us.

Kerik Kouklis is a fine art photographer and educator who specializes in creating handmade photographs. Born and raised in California with a background in music and 30 years as an environmental geologist under his belt, Kerik combines a contemporary eye with 19th century processes to produce work that is uniquely his own.  Influenced by the pictorialists of the early 20th century, he makes images that can be at once calm and unsettling. Kerik’s work is currently represented in California by Oficino Uno in Carmel, CA,  the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite where he has been teaching hand-made photographic techniques since 2000 and Kevin Longino Fine Photographs in CT. His prints are held in private and corporate collections in North America and Europe as well as the Museum of Fine Art, Houston and the Hoyt Institute of Fine Arts, Newcastle, Pennsylvania.
