Hello and welcome ~
Kevin J Mellis is a Canadian Large Format Photographer based out of Calgary, Alberta, who is recognized for his use of traditional 19th Century Photographic processes using the 8x10 view camera to investigate the world around him. He has chosen to use this historical photographic medium because it allows him to drastically slow down his artistic process, which then, in turn, promotes more comprehensive artistic exploration as well as cultivates more internal patience.
Mellis has won several international awards and has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally ~ Toronto, New York City, Los Angeles, Philadelphia as well as Fort Collins, Colorado at the Center for Fine Art Photography. He is a member of several foundations, including the Penumbra Foundation in New York City for Alternative Photographic Processes, the George Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York, and is also an international leadership member of the American Photographic Artists' Association ~ APA, New York Chapter.
