Frank Ockenfels 3, Book Gallery Exhibition and Book Release
Frank Ockenfels 3 is an American photographer, artist, director, and APA member. He is renowned for his portraiture and incorporating non-photographic elements in his work. Ockenfels applies techniques like collage, painting, and drawing to his photographs.
Frank Ockenfels Volume 3 puts together his creative work into a collection of images that provide a window into his visual thinking, the internal world of imagery and emotions in his mind. Subjected to ink, collage, or paint, the images are no longer just photographs of an individual, but become a more personal statement of who the artist is, of his psyche and as such, creative artistry in its purest form. He creates waking dreams, images that represent the darkest, least-illuminated aspects of his unconscious projected on the person he has photographed. He has the courage to go way beyond the expected and the obvious to the breaking of boundaries of traditional photography.
The hardcover book is available now.
