Karl Baden's childhood dream was to be an archaeologist. This dream was shattered upon taking his first college archaeology course. In the Fall of 1972, he took a leave from school, hitchhiked across the U.S., and traveled through Central and South America with his father's old Nikon. He has been taking and making photographs ever since. Though Baden has yet to launch his own website, a variety of his projects may be found at the gallery website of his faithful and tolerant dealer, Howard Yezerski and also at Luminous-lint.com and KBeveryday.blogspot.com.
