International award winning photographer and former Hong Kong resident, Ken Ball, has just returned from a trip to Cuba where he captured the colours and people of this island.

Born in Sydney Ken Ball began his photography career as a press photographer for regional and metropolitan newspapers, and in the late 1960's he left Australia to work as a photojournalist covering the Vietnam War.

When he finally returned to Australia after decades based in Hong Kong, he concentrated whole heartedly on creative art photography. Ken admits to being inspired by the legacy of impressionist masters such as Cezanne, Monet and Pissarro, which is an obvious influence on his recent works. In the last 15 years, Ken has experimented with impressionist, abstract and creative photography of Nature, landscapes and nudes.

Ken lectures widely on art photography and has exhibited over 40 times during the last decade and published many books.
