BIOGRAPHY

Keith Sharp (Chester, PA, United States, 1968) works as a photographer and art teacher based in Media, PA. Keith Sharp studied at the Philadelphia University of Arts. In 1991 he graduated fromThe University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA - MAT and in 1990 he got his BFA from The University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA.

"I don’t just take photographs; I create and construct them. I attempt to create mysterious, subtle, and poetic images that cause the viewer to do a double take. Much of my work is inspired from my love of nature and plants. When beginning a new series, I let things percolate in my mind over time; reflecting on various images that have caught my eye and how i can transform them to play with our perception. Then i make sketches of the images that i will construct. After taking photographs of ordinary and everyday scenes of the world around me, i then transform them by reworking, layering, and juxtaposing these images on the computer."
