A born-again documentary photographer, Kevin Baum grew up in Chicago’s Northwest Suburb of Wheeling, IL. A “creative kid,” and an avid writer and movie watcher, he decided to try his hand at the camera and enrolled in an Intro to Photography class while in high school. Admittedly, he didn’t care much for medium then. The film development process took too long; the pinhole camera was too primitive. It wasn’t until the winter of 2017-2018 that he fell for the art and began to take it seriously.
He’s self-taught and while he primarily shoots digital, he’s recently entertained 35mm film. His vision is unique and his style is defined by the progressiveness of his tastes, his eye for detail, light, and composition, and his compassion for the city and its people.
