Author: Southwest United States based visual artist Brendon Kahn’s work explores today’s reality where the approach to photography is navigated by a mirage in the vicinity of contrast and unsettling moments where uncanny disruptions defamiliarize our experiences with the ordinary. Guided by competition and paved by modernity’s fierce push for perfection, these strangely manufactured channels of both sincerity and surreal moments raise questions around our notions of certainty and visual faith. Using bold, sensual colors within gripping environments Kahn configures a mysterious and at times destabilizing reality for the viewer. Kahn astutely focuses in on the enigmatic perspectives he discovers, thereby revealing the subtleties and strange beauty in the visible world. With concentrated focus, he creates highly charged and psychologically captivating images of great resonance.
