“Crossroads” is an exhibition of iconic works in the long career of a master photographer.
David Michael Kennedy is a legendary photographer who’s body or work spans over 40 years. His photographs are held in both private and museum collections, including The National Portrait Gallery, The Smithsonian Institution and The Hardwood Museum, among others.
Kennedy’s work includes portraits of musicians, actors and artists. Over the years he has taken iconic photos of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Muddy Waters, Debbie Harry, and Willie Nelson and many others. You have probably seen many of his album covers.
Leaving New York and commercial photography in 1986 David Michael Kennedy moved to New Mexico and began to focus on his fine art photography. His name quickly became synonymous with New Mexican Landscapes. His vision grew deeper as his work evolved into the exploration and documentation of cultural landscapes. His portfolios of American Indian Dance Work not only captivate us with its strength and beauty, but are easily recognizable as an important body of work.
Kennedy’s images are materialized through the traditional analogue technique of Platinum/Palladium printing, of which he is widely considered to be one of the best in the world. This process dates back to the mid 1800’s. The final prints result in images that are printed on fine art paper using brushed emulsion. They have an archival quality that makes each one a beautiful unique print.
