Keith’s photography is a blend of his two passions: abstract art and nature. Living in New Haven, Keith has the opportunity to explore the surrounding woods, lakes, and rivers, and he often takes his trusty digital camera with him on these excursions. His process incorporates a deep appreciation for the natural world, using his camera lens as the means to a stronger connection with what he sees in nature. He seeks to capture the ways in which abstract art mimics nature through shapes, colors, and patterns.

Keith has found a supportive community at the Creative Arts Workshop where he studies with the photographer Phyllis Crowley. This has played a significant role in his artistic growth. He also credits his classmates with encouraging him to explore new directions in his work.

Keith is a BEKI member. Over the past 8 years, he has actively participated in various group shows with his classmates, showcasing his work in a variety of venues, including the Mitchell Library, the Lawn Club, Fairhaven Furniture, and the CAW gallery. This is his first solo exhibition. All of the photographs presented at BEKI have been created since 2019.
