A koken (pronounced like “spoken”) is a stage assistant in traditional Japanese theater. They work behind-the-scenes handling scenery, props and assisting actors. Koken is a free system designed for photographers, designers, and creative DIYs to publish independent web sites of their work.
Koken is built to offer photographers, designers and artists a different kind of publishing platform. One that is focused primarily on images, can be used on your own web server, and offers robust publishing tools for web sites as original and unique as the artist themselves.
Koken comes with a free publish services plugin for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom that makes updating, editing and replacing content easy as well.
