Photographs by Kevin Mikkelsen
Stewart Library, Middle Level (Ongoing)
Kevin Mikkelsen resides in
North Ogden, Utah right at the base of the Wasatch Range. “Besides being
a beautiful place to live, North Ogden is the perfect jumping off point
in which to reach one of 7 National Parks, all within a 5 hour drive
time. As time passes, and new things are seen, more miles are traveled,
and more mountains climbed, that love progressively deepens and has
become an inspiration in his photographic work. Capturing images through
today’s digital and film technology has allowed Kevin to express that
inspiration in the form of scenic landscapes and wildlife fine art
prints.” We are pleased to have the opportunity to show 13 of Kevin’s
beautiful images in the library, his complete works may be viewed by
