Ken Duncan Gallery
Ken Duncan is well known as the pioneer of Limited Edition Photographic Art in Australia. After a visit to New York in the early 1980’s, Ken returned home with a dream to have photography widely accepted as an art form in this country.
The increasing number of Australian photographers now emulating his panoramic style and finding a market for their work is testimony to Ken’s success.
