Santa Fe New Mexico based photographer Brian K. Edwards specializes in fine art, travel, and documentary photography and photographic print making. His realist fine art photography includes landscapes, urban street scenes, and architecture. Much of his work combines landscape with interesting, often haunting, architectural subjects. His specialized photographic printmaking makes his prints truly unique -- incorporating depth and tones not often found in other photographs. These processing techniques include archival pigment and palladium prints, and prints that combine palladium, cyanotype, and watercolor pigments (gum bichromate). He also makes traditional black and white (gelatin silver) and modern archival pigment prints.
Brian has been part of the Santa Fe Studio Tour since 2014 and serves on the signs and social media committees. He is attracted to the Studio Tour since it gives him “an opportunity to show his work to a broad group of buyers in an informal setting that allows him to discuss his work and demonstrate how many of his prints are made.”
Brian's work has been published in The Hand Magazine and Landscape Magazine and has also been exhibited in numerous galleries, including the Marion Center and the Palace of the Governors in Santa Fe. He has also shown work in The Kiernan Gallery in Lexington, Virginia, The Center for Fine Art Photography in Fort Collins, Colorado, the Southeast Center for Photography in Greenville, South Carolina, The Midwest Center for Photography in Wichita, Kansas, the Soho Photo Gallery in New York City, and the Lightbox Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. His work has also appeared in numerous online venues including Don’t Take Pictures, Feature Shoot, and Fraction Magazine.
He recently published an article on New Mexico Works Progress Administration (WPA) sites in El Palacio Magazine.
His series The Vanishing Middle Class was selected by Center Santa Fe for Review Santa Fe 2021.
He received his MFA in Photography at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco in 2019.
