Kevin McCusker is an emerging Iowa artist. After service in the Marine Corps, Kevin studied studio art at Cornell College and graduated in 2015. After Graduation, Kevin self-published his first photography book, “Greater Cedar Rapids,” depicting the built environment in and around Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Most recently, Kevin and his wife Kristin opened a photography and art studio in downtown Manchester.

The reality of the landscape is Kevin’s starting point. With his left eye pressed to the viewfinder, Kevin creates a visual index of our rural and urban world, devoid of extraneous visual elements. The images seek to present the world in a clear, precise, and unadorned manner.
