The Story and The Silence

BY ANDREE KEHN
@ VOL 30 ON FEB 20, 2015

"I went to college, got a BFA in photography, and swore that I would never, ever, shoot weddings."

In The Story and The Silence from PechaKucha Night Portland Maine Vol. 30, Andree Kehn shares her work as wedding photographer who specializes in outrageous matrimonies of non-traditional couples. Her eclectic background informs the way she sees the world around her.  Her search for connection in the lonely life of creative-arts self-employment has driven her to work on a personal project of underwater fine art portraits, in which she explores themes of communication and story.

Silence Can Be Visual

BY LUKE THIESSEN
@ VOL 33 ON FEB 22, 2018

In a noisy world full of force fed stimulus and information, copious distractions that come at us on a daily basis fromr oad signs, radio, television, drama, personal relationships we are swimming neck deepin information. Not only that but we’re choosing to find ways to cram it in faster and more efficiently but multitasking our evenings away watching TV and scanning Twitter.

Luke Thiessen takes the audience through a period in his life where the noise was at an all time high and then came to a skittering halt, and amidst the silence that followed he found his creative self once more and the revelation that silence can be a visual thing.
