Kenny Rogers was a dedicated and talented photographer for nearly four decades. His best-known images are portraits of well-known singers, actors, and dignitaries from around the globe. In addition, he had an ongoing passion for photographing the American landscape. He was skilled with his large format view camera, and loved to make prints in his darkroom. Kenny said this about his photography, “I am an impulsive obsessive. I impulsively get involved with something, and then I get obsessed with it. So that’s what happened with photography.”
