Kenneth Hanson began his serious, but part time, pursuit of large format black-and-white photography in 1978 when he acquired a Toyo 4x5 field camera. His interest in landscape photography derived from his boyhood association with the English Lake District. The shore was a few minutes from his home, the Pennine moors were to the east and the horizon was a profile of the Lakeland Mountains. He has photographed in many locations including New England, the California Sierra, Northern England (the limestone outcrops that are his home territory) and the Himalayas. He has spent many years devoted to darkroom printing; however, recent advances in archival digital printing have made it possible for him to reexamine many of his older images and make prints of his work more available. Hanson moved to the United States in 1958 and prior to his retirement in 1991 he was Senior Biochemist at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station.
