Chris Rainier on Kingston Site

Kingston Technology Company, Inc. has announced that internationally-acclaimed and award-winning documentary photographer, Chris Rainier, is the featured photographer on Kingston's Icons of Photography Web site. Recognized for his study and pictorial documentation of indigenous cultures and tribes around the world, Chris Rainier is considered one of the premiere Master Photo Printers in the world. His love and appreciation for black-and-white photography can be traced back to his days as an assistant to Ansel Adams. Today, Chris Rainier continues his documentary photography of disappearing cultures around the world and is the director of Cultures on the Edge, a Web site, which is part of National Geographic's Cultures Initiative.



Kingston's Icons of Photography program and Web site has quickly become one of the most popular online locations for photo enthusiasts and professional photographers to learn tips and techniques from some of the world's most respected photographers. Each month, Kingston® spotlights a new "Icon of Photography" who provides interesting advice and anecdotes for taking better pictures while sharing their unique approach to digital imaging, storage, and workflow. As this month's Icons of Photography spotlight photographer, Chris Rainier will share a number of travel-related tips that have helped him navigate even the most remote parts of the world. His tips will also help readers capture the beauty and character in their own part of the world. Whether photographing in New Guinea or New England, readers will take away information that can be applied to their own photography and workflow.

Chris Rainier has published three photography books -- Ancient Marks: The Sacred Origins of Tattoos and Body Markings, recently published in paperback by Insight Editions (www.insighteditions.com) following a hardcover edition published in late 2004; Keepers of The Spirit and Where Masks Still Dance, New Guinea.

Kingston will introduce a new photographer with his or her featured photographic tip, gallery of images, calendar of events and biography around the 15th of each month. Photographers and consumers can read the latest tips and view images by visiting www.kingston.com/digitalmedia/iop. Other Kingston Icons of Photography include: Barbara Bordnick, Colin Finlay, Douglas Kirkland, Gerd Ludwig, Peter Read Miller, and Harry Benson.
