Kenneth Jarecke was born in 1963 in Fairfax, Missouri, USA. After joining Contact Press Images in 1986, he earned his reputation with images from the US political scene since the administration of President Ronald Reagan, student demonstrations in China’s Tiananmen Square (1989), and his book of black and white images from the first Gulf War, Just Another War (Bedrock Press 1992). He has also photographed two winter and five summer Olympic Games since 1988.

In 1989 he became a contract photographer for TIME magazine, and has since produced stories on AIDS in Africa, turmoil in Afghanistan, and famine in Ethiopia. Since 1990, when he published a major piece on New York in Time magazine, he has continued to produce intimate black and white and color essays on American society. He is based in Montana, USA.
