Keith Frohn is a fine art and commercial photographer from New Jersey who concentrates on conceptual portraits. He is drawn to beauty, mystery and drama and more than willing to manufacture these themes using unusual lighting, meticulous concepts, image manipulation and fully built sets.
A product of suburbia, Keith grew up in a somewhat isolated neighborhood with abundant woods. Unstructured play and extensive bike riding through trails helped fuel his overactive imagination. In the house, Keith enjoyed playing with action figures and absorbing hours of cinema, both contemporary and classic. He wrote stories from a young age and constantly daydreamed, so much so that even his imaginary matchbox car drivers had elaborate backstories.
An observer of people and behavior along with his love of literature and film inspired Keith to continue writing throughout his life. It was several years ago when he was enticed by the convenience of digital cameras and the possibilities provided by digital manipulation. Immediately, he found this medium to be a great way to express the emotions, stories and concepts that grew inside. He draws inspiration from his fears and desires.
Like stills from a movie, Keith's images are snapshots from a greater ongoing action. The viewer can collect visual clues from his images and add their own story, therefore, creating a more personal experience.
Keith hopes to share his storytelling with the viewer and allow others to experience the joy of creating a story.
