Kim Keever's large-scale photographs are created by meticulously constructing miniature topographies in a 200-gallon tank, which is then filled with water. These dioramas of fictitious environments are brought to life with colored lights and the dispersal of pigment, producing ephemeral atmospheres that he must quickly capture with his large-format camera. Keever builds up entire worlds in large fish tanks with an inventive combination of hand-crafted plaster molds, found objects and pigments which are injected into the water at just the right moment to produce fantastical and yet eerily familiar landscapes

Keever's art is combination of the real and the imaginary, they document places that somehow we know, but never were.
