Working in New York in the 1970s and 80s, Kennedy developed a successful career in advertising, editorial, album cover and portrait photography. In 1986 leaving his commercial career behind to concentrate solely on his personal work he moved to northern New Mexico where he began to produce a new body of work based on the landscape and peoples of the Southwest. In March 2004 he left New Mexico and began a two year journey through America. Traveling and living in a vintage 1960 Airstream Trailer, he traveled 70,000 miles photographing the landscape and its people. His aim was to photograph what is left of an America that exists quietly outside the frantic Zeitgeist of this era, where people haven't entirely forgotten that the principle business of life is to enjoy it. Now he is back home in New Mexico continueing his lifelone love of photography.
