“Enlightenment consists of photographs in different environments, ranging from crowded cities to quiet rivers. This Buddha's image of steadfast composure puts our fast-paced lives on pause, and brings us into a world where clarity might just momentarily exist.”
Kit Kittle is an award winning photographer and film director.
Kittle's photography first appeared in Ways to Shiva, published by the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1981. He has worked all over the world, including a two-month stint in Antarctica for Life magazine. His work has appeared in Time, National Geographic Traveler, Outside, Smithsonian and the New York Times, among many others.
Kittle directed his first travel film in the Caribbean in 1991. Since then, he has directed dozens of TV commercials for sports companies and the tourist boards of China, Ireland, Venezuela, and British Columbia.
Kittle’s first book, Roughnecks, was published in 1985 and was described by People magazine as “profiles full of pungent, unexpected pleasure and insight.” His second book, Enlightenment, was published in 2014 and his third book, Drag Queens, was published in 2015.
