For those of you who do not know Ken Zane, you need to meet him. If you do, you will become instant friends. He is not only great at what he does, but he is fun to be around. Digitas Health in Philadelphia is lucky to have him as their Senior Art Producer. There is never a dull moment with Ken and when you are with him, you feel like you have known him for years. When we asked him to contribute to our Solving Mysteries series, he did not hesitate. No surprise there.
How do you search for photography nowadays?
I like to look though magazines, search online at sites such as the WorkBook and LeBook. I also speak with other art buyers.

What are you reading online?
I am reading Art Space, Nowness, Saatchi online, Fashionartisan; among various other sites for inspiration.
What are photographers doing lately to stand out from their competitors?
I think a photographer’s personal vision is what makes him/her stand out.
