This catalog of photographs serves as a promotional tool for the Kentucky 120 project. It will serve as an index for the soon to be published coffee table book. While the photographs do no intentionally represent each county, collectively the 120 landscapes paint a beautiful portrait of Kentucky.

  4. 4. The photographs selected for “Kentucky 120” represent the most artful imagery in each of the commonwealth’s counties. The photographs were taken by Ed Lawrence during his ten-year journey on the back roads of Kentucky. They are a combination of local landmarks and landscapes that would only be known by those who own the land or pass it by on a daily basis. The small square format acts as a window pane. Ed Lawrence frames the scene for his viewers as if they traveled together to each county in the state. Earth, water and sky are at the core of his work, capturing the line, color and form of Kentucky’s natural and shaped landscape. Through these photographs, Ed Lawrence conveys his love and deep connection to all of Kentucky, from the Mississippi River to the Appalachian mountains.

  29. 29. Ed Lawrence has explored many visual art media and always returned to photography for artistic expression. He received his irst camera for his ninth birthday. It was a Kodak Brownie with a lash attachment. His parents never really understood at that time why he took pictures of everything except people. He wanted to photograph shapes and patterns that interested him. The father of his best friend had built a darkroom in his house. Many hours were spent in that red-lit room exploring the magic of developing ilm and making prints. While studying ine art in college, it was the photography projects that helped Ed understand abstraction. And, as a young graphic designer, he maintained his interest in photography but put the Nikon 35 millimeter camera aside and started using a Kodak Instamatic. It was inexpensive, pocket-sized, easy to use and perfect for capturing the unique architectural patterns and design details found in his city environment. When the Polaroid Land camera SX70 became popular, Ed fell in love with the instant gratiication, harking back to the darkroom days of watching a print magically develop. Mistakes could be made and corrected in the next shot with the Polaroid. It was an experimental format that led him to a reduction of detail and focused artistic expression. Photography fell to the wayside as Ed Lawrence advanced his professional career and raised two sons. His oldest son, in high school, found the old Nikon camera tucked away in a closet and took an interest in photography. It became a father-son activity for the pairtoridearoundcountryroadschasingsunsets—thesonwiththeilmcameraandthe father with a digital camera. Ed Lawrence became hooked on photography once again. Digital photography provides all of the elements that have drawn Ed Lawrence to the medium throughout his life. Not a photographer’s photographer, he could care less about the world of apertures, f-stops, ISOs and metering. Ed Lawrence just uses a camera to paint what he sees.
