Employing both alternative and digital means, Kline’s photographic and film projects explore the primacy of light and impermanence. Projects have been undertaken while in residence at Ucross in Wyoming, the Santa Fe Art Institute in New Mexico, Anderson Ranch in Colorado, Baja California, Mexico, Fundacion Valparaiso, Spain, and the Arctic Circle, funded in part through the American Scandinavian Foundation.  His work is in the collections of the Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, Arizona, the Art Museum at Princeton University, the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, and the National Park Service, Ellis Island, among others. He is the recipient of the Aaron Siskind Fellowship, and the Earthwatch Fellowship in Hungary.  In addition to exhibiting work, Kline continues to research early photographic processes and has received funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, lecturing at both the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the George Eastman House. He has been a member of the faculty at the Department of Photography and Imaging, Tisch School of the Arts, NYU, 1986-2009. He has taught full-time at Bennington College in Vermont since 1998.  BFA, San Francisco Art Institute, MFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Nathan Lyons, Thesis Chair.
