Ken Winnick is a Shoreline-based photographer and archivist whose philosophy is to “Free the Archives”, bringing this information out of dusty buildings and into public spaces to present our truths and tell our stories. Many of his outdoor projects can be seen around Shoreline, WA, including the Shoreline Community College bus shelter and the Edwin T. Pratt bus shelter at Ronald Bog Park. Ken’s work has also been displayed at the Wing Luke Museum, Das Schaufenster Gallery in Ballard, and through online salons on the philosophy of Hannah Arendt. As an archivist, Ken developed the Photo Archive Deep Dive Search System for the Shoreline Historical Museum and the Edwin T. Pratt Legacy Archive system for the Black Heritage Society. Ken currently runs an Archives Hearth Group at Temple Beth Am in Seattle. This group builds community through sharing histories/history. His work has been supported by ventures including 4Culture, The Goethe Institute, King County Metro, and the Pendleton & Elisabeth Carey Miller Charitable Foundation.
