Ken Konchel’s stunning silver gelatin, black-and-white photographs capture the dynamic power of urban architecture. With dramatic close-up shots, Konchel shifts our gaze to wonders of modern engineering, which surround us on a daily basis, yet we often overlook. Konchel captures the dynamic flux of urban landscapes–ever-evolving skylines, in which components often vanish, are destroyed, renovated, or supplanted. In so doing, he hopes to document our rich architectural heritage and perpetuate its legacy.

“I hope my work says that our architectural surroundings should never be taken for granted, and that they contribute immeasurably to our quality of life. I contend that a society that encourages originality and diversity in building design, and values preservation of its architectural past, will possess a quality of life far superior to one that rejects those ideals.”

Konchel received countless accolades for his work and has numerous solo and group exhibitions under his belt. A native of Detroit, he lives and works in Saint Louis, Missouri.
