Skip Klein is a Baltimore-based artist who uses photography to explore the human condition and his fascination with people and faces. A graduate of Yale University and the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Skip returned to his childhood passion for photography after managing a health sciences mutual fund led to three severe bouts of treatment-resistant depression. For Skip, carrying a camera is a way to be fully alive in the world and a good excuse to meet new people. Skip has self-published six artist books, including Michaela's World, GingerSnaps, and Ventanas De Miguel. He was the executive producer of the film Return to Cuba: In the Footsteps of Walker Evans, which premiered at the Camden International Film Festival (CIFF) in September, 2016, and resulted in a solo show of his still photographs at Roland Park Place and group shows of the group's still photographs at PhoPA Gallery in Portland, Maine Media Gallery in Rockport, and Fototeca de Cuba in Havana. Skip's portraits have won competitions, and two of his images are held in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution.
