Keith Prue picked up his first camera at age fourteen in England where he was born and raised, and his father patiently passed on the darkroom magic of traditional black and white film processing. In his late teens, he developed other interests, so photography took a backseat. However, he always had a camera loaded with color film at hand during his extensive travel adventures (living and working on four continents and traveling to more than fifty countries), but his pictures were no more than a sweet record.
Around the time that digital cameras became main-stream, Keith attended workshops in the USA and overseas with internationally acclaimed master photographer Ernesto Bazan. This was a kick-start transition into the black and white digital world, and he fell in love with the medium in a whole new way. This was followed by a two-year period studying with the late Ben Lifson, one of the world’s most prominent photography writers and critics.
Keith has exhibited online and shown in group exhibitions in the USA and Mexico. His photographs are held in private collections in the USA, Mexico, Brazil, Uruguay, UK and France. Currently he resides in Rhode Island, USA, and is an Art League Rhode Island Elected Artist.
