David Michael Kennedy
David Michael Kennedy attended Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, where he acquired the technical mastery that allows him to give his intuition free reign. A master of the palladium/platinum printing process, he spent 18 years in New York with a successful career in advertising, editorial, album cover, and portrait photography (including Bob Dylan, Mike Tyson, Rachel Rosenthal, Debby Harry, and Isaac Stern) and creating award-winning album covers for major record labels. His work has appeared in magazines such as New York, Omni, Rolling Stone, Spin, Time, and Working Woman.
In 1986, leaving his commercial career behind to concentrate solely on his personal work, he moved to northern New Mexico where he began documenting the land and cultures of the Southwest. This is his 13th year teaching at The Workshops. His web site is www.davidmichaelkennedy.com.
