Kevin Hart is a landscape photographer currently based in Bellows Falls, VT, who is heavily inspired by moving water. His work often reflects -- in both realistic and impressionistic ways -- the dynamism of water's effect on a landscape. By searching out unique perspectives and conditions, and employing techniques such as long exposure and intentional camera movement, Kevin hopes that his work tells the stories of an ever-changing landscape.
Kevin's favorite technique, however, may be his drive to find unique angles of his subjects -- often partially-frozen waterfalls -- by undertaking difficult hikes and sometimes dangerous maneuvers in the field.
"I have a willingness to push my boundaries while holding a great amount of respect for nature."
Kevin's relationship with nature is deep and complex, and dates back to his youth. As he recalls:
"One trip that stands out is a canoe trip I took as a ten year old when a thunderstorm moved in on us unexpectedly, forcing us to seek shelter on an island while it moved overhead. I think my relationship with nature started to take form then -- I now have a willingness to push my boundaries while holding a great amount of respect for nature."
Currently, he maintains hiking trails in Vermont (which is a fantastic job for scouting locations) and travels as often as he can to New York, New Hampshire, and Maine to hike, explore new difficult-to-reach places, and photograph fleeting conditions like freezing water and rising fog.
