Location: Amman, Jordan
Kelvin Bown's work in restoring historical images offers to cast light on ways of life which are being forgotten, illuminating past lives and views of the Middle East. His exhibitions aim to make tangible the harmony and diversity of the region in bygone times. His first three exhibitions have been well received by Jordan’s artistic and academic communities, and have been shown several times in Amman. They can be seen at http://www.reawakeningthepast.com/?page_id=423#sthash.JS7aiCFg.dpuf . He has a deep love and appreciation of the region, its peoples, religions, cultures and history, which deepened during the period of ten years spent living in Sinai, Egypt, with three of the Bedouin tribes there.
Kelvin meticulously digitally restores damaged antique photos of the region, obtained from extensive archival collections, and produces images of high possible printed quality, in whichever way he feels most necessary in order to bring out the subject’s story and message.
