My Bio Looking for spaces and places that hold both a sense of history as well as an acknowledgement of the present, Keith A. Barker photographs in contexts that allow for more to behold than meets the eye.

His portfolio includes nearby locations of spiritual significance around the Central Kentucky region, such as Cane Ridge in Bourbon County and the Abbey of Gethsemani in Trappist, KY.

More recently he has been working in his hometown exploring specific people and places that point toward universal realities.

In 2013 Keith was selected to participate in an artist workshop in South Africa, investigating that country's history, culture, religion, and how art is informed by it all. The workshop is to culminate with a traveling exhibit set to travel starting in 2014 to points across the U.S. and beyond.

Keith received his MFA in Photography from Savannah College of Art and Design, currently teaches Photography, and chairs the Art Department at Asbury University.
