BRIAN KUHLMANN is the photographer behind Free From The Box’s gallery. For him, shooting photographs became more than just a hobby in 7th grade when he volunteered with the Year Book Committee and was made the official photographer. Since then his passion has caught fire. He has worked as an award-winning commercial photographer for the last 33 years, and his recent personal projects include Song of Absolution, an evocative series of portraits of trees, and Transgender, a weaving together of images and words into stories. Capturing moments in such a way that they invite an experience of connection, Brian brings his unique vision and sensibility to Free From The Box, and we’re excited to continue to collaborate with him and bring young people’s stories into the world.
