About Ken Duncan
Multi award-winning artist Ken Duncan OAM is recognised internationally as a gifted and prolific landscape photographer. A national TV current affairs program aptly described Ken as an “Iconic Australian Image Maker”. His Limited Edition Prints grace the walls of many fine homes and businesses right around the world. Ken’s skill with a camera is not limited to his renowned landscape work – he has worked on several international projects including photography for rock band Midnight Oil and commissions for National Geographic, World Vision and other agencies. In August 2008, Ken celebrated the first 25 years of his incredible career with the release of a spectacular new book, Ken Duncan: Life’s an Adventure. Featuring many rare or never-before-published photographs, the book intimately details Ken’s very personal journey – from where it all started, to adventures with his friend Mel Gibson, to expeditions around Australia and the world, to his dramatic conversion to Christianity.

In 2006, Ken was named an Honorary Fellow of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography for his many years of service to the photographic industry. In 2009, he was honoured to be awarded a Medal Of The Order Of Australia (OAM) by the Federal Government for his services to landscape photography, publishing and the arts. That same year, Ken received the photographic industry’s highest honours – the Photo Imaging Council of Australia’s Gold Tripod award. He was also delighted to be announced the Gosford City 2009 Citizen of the Year for his long-standing contribution to his home region of the NSW Central Coast.
The three spectacular Ken Duncan Galleries – in Sydney, NSW Central Coast, and Melbourne – are the largest group of privately owned photo galleries in Australia. Apart from selling Ken’s famous prints, the Galleries also offer many other unique gifts, including coffee table books, postcards, posters, tableware and jigsaw puzzles.
Ken also gives a lot of his time to work with indigenous youth in the community of Haasts Bluff, 250km from Alice Springs, through his Walk a While project. The Walk a While foundation was established in 2010 to further this work, helping to empower our indigenous people to tell their own stories through the arts.
