Kerik Kouklis is a fine art photographer who has been involved in creating hand-made photographs since his father set up a darkroom in the basement when he was 12.  Born and raised in California with a background in music and geology, Kerik combines a contemporary eye with 19th, 20th and 21st  century processes to produce work that is uniquely his own.  Working in a variety of formats from small digital cameras up to large view cameras, Kerik uses both film and digital negatives to create his prints. He is known as a skilled practitioner and teacher of the platinum/palladium process and the combined gum-platinum process.  He has used these processes to create his work since 1990 and has been teaching workshops in these processes since 1997, both in his home studio and at various locations around the US, Canada and the UK. In recent years Kerik’s travels have taken him to Iceland, Scotland, the Galapagos and Mongolia. In 2017 Kerik completed his first documentary film “Mongolia in Winter”. Kerik’s work is currently represented in California by Oficino Uno in Carmel and the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite where he has been teaching hand-made photographic techniques since 2000. His prints are held in private and corporate collections in North America and Europe as well as the Museum of Fine Art, Houston and the Hoyt Institute of Fine Arts, Newcastle, Pennsylvania.
