About

Frederick Leslie Kenett F.I.B.P 1924 -2012 “Unquestionably the greatest photographer of sculpting in the world who himself became a sculpture”. The Listener -T G Rosenthal. Born in Berlin in 1924, son of a Berlin Doctor and forced to leave his country by the National Socialist party, whilst still a boy came to England in 1939. Frederick Leslie Cohen (later changed to Kenett shared a fugitive existence with others of his age and drifted from one means of livelihood to another without any apparent direction or sense of purpose. He joined the US Intelligence Corps during the war whereby he developed his interest in photography and later enrolled at the Guildford School of Art to study photography. Frederick Kenett undertook assignments for, museums, publishers, governments and collections throughout the world. He has taken photographs of European Sculpture in Italy, Spain, Germany, Holland and France often negotiating with governments. From the mid sixties he ceased work as a photographer of sculpture to become a sculpture himself. He aroused the interest of leading London Galleries and his work was exhibited with much attention. Suddenly he stopped exhibiting but did not stop sculpting. Frederick Kenett wrote “Isolation and self absorption, also a theme of Seurat” with reference to himself.
