The Photography of Stephen Krupnick

Welcome to my newly rebuilt (and always in a state of addition) website featuring my photography from around the world.  My old site, approximately 706 pages, was showing it’s age, and the software didn't seem to be able to keep up with my ever-expanding amount of images (I'm going to guess in excess of 150,000 and counting).  And after months of work, and hiding out in my studio, I'm near finished.  Even though there is a lot of work still left to be done, I felt it was better to launch the new site than wait until it was perfect, so here is my new site. 

Some of the changes we've made or are in the processing of making are:

Larger images on each page of the site,

Navigation buttons in the same place on every image page, with the exception of the pages that link directly to the main navigation buttons on the left side of the site,

A primarily alphabetical site map with links to every page on the site making it much easier to navigate (one of my pet peeves for most sites - the lack of easy navigation),

Each print being labeled with identifying information (We’re working on this - it’s much more fun to know what you are looking at),

New and upcoming products, photowalks, day outings with no more than three people, trips, books and publications, and finally

Photo contests and monthly give-aways to randomly chosen people on our email list.  Additionally, the first ten people who sign up to receive our monthly newsletter will receive a free T-shirt.  (Only one t-shirt per email/name/address.)

I’d love to hear any comments, suggestions and/or recommendations you have regarding the new site.  And, if we use your comments and/or suggestions we’ll send you a free t-shirt too.  It’s been a labor of love, and I’m really pleased with how it is turning out.  I hope you enjoy my images as much as I have enjoyed creating them.

So, here we go - Enjoy.

I received my first camera, a Pentax Spotmatic, while a student at New York University during the late 1960’s. I cannot imagine a more exiting time to experiment and learn about photography - I lived in Greenwich Village and would wander about photographing everything from musicians in Washington Square Park, some of whom would later become well known, to protesters during the height of the Vietnam War, to Central Park and Times Square. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to live in New York and to photograph the city during an amazing time. (See my Vintage New York images here)

I loved photography and everything that it allowed me to do. I’m able to tell a story, a narrative that connects each of us to one another. In a very powerful way, my photography could make people smile or laugh. My photos were able to communicate the nuances of emotions with much more intensity than I could ever do with words. I can capture a gesture or the hint of an expression, or a place at a point in time that would never be the same. Taking photos for me really was about self-discovery.

These days, photography to me is more fascinating than ever. My projects attempt to tell important stories of our time; Urban Decay examines Detroit after the demise of the auto industry, Off the Interstate and Appalachia took me on a 7,500 mile road trip on the back roads of nine states, exploring the impact of the interstate and population loss on rural America (with more to come), and Below Zero takes a closer look at northern Alaska. I have many more photos that I would love to display, and I will be adding additional sections and images to the site in the near future.

Thank you.
