Ken Schles photographs. He talks and writes about that experience as well. His books are considered ‘intellectual milestones in photography’ (Süddeutsche Zeitung). His most recent book, A New History of Photography, was a finalist for the 2009 Rencontres d’Arles Photographie Contemporary Book Award. Vince Aletti in the New Yorker called his book Invisible City, ‘hellishly brilliant.’ Invisible City was also included in MoMA’s More Than One Photography exhibition and listed in M+M Auer’s survey of photographic books. It has influenced a generation of photographers and is a favorite of the photographer Robert Frank. Books of his have appeared on notable lists published by Photo-Eye and the Sunday New York Times Book Review. His work is included in private and public collections such as MoMA, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum and The Art Institute of Chicago, among others. Ken Schles is a NYFA Fellow and is an adjunct teacher at ICP. Ken studied photography at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art with William Gedney, Len Jenshel, and Larry Fink, and studied additionally with the artists Reuben Kadish, Hans Haacke, and Martha Rosler, graduating in 1982. He was also briefly a student of the legendary Lisette Model at the New School for Social Research. Prior to his graduation he began working for Gilles Peress.
