In April of 2016, I launched “Why?” because there were too many photographers who only knew the artists who spoke at the last convention they attended. Well, we’re an industry led by some remarkable photographers who every day set the standard for quality, creativity, and passion for the craft. I simply wanted you to meet more of them!

I’m very excited to have David Michael Kennedy in the “Why?” spotlight today. David and I first met back in the late 80’s when I was with Hasselblad. At that time his iconic image of Debbie Harry was used in the corporate ad campaign. In 1986 he left NYC and his commercial photography business heading for New Mexico and a goal to fine-tune his work in fine art. Since then David has become recognized as one of the finest Platinum Palladium printers in the world with prints in private and public collections.

He’s a phenomenal artist and human being. In fact, it’s his sincerity and passion for the craft and his subjects that makes today’s “Why?” one of the most poignant backstories we’ve ever shared.

I am happy to announce that I now have a booth at El Museo on Saturdays and Sunday through the winter months. This space gives me the opportunity to show you a small sampling of my work in Santa Fe, and hopefully entice you to come up to my Gallery in El Rito for a look at my much larger body of work. One of the new pieces at El Museo is the never before seen 44 x 44 inch proofs for the mixed media Tesuque Buffalo Dancer. This is a great opportunity to see some of my work in Santa Fe and to see a new 5×7 open edition series I’ve been working on.
Saturdays: 8am to 3 pm
Sundays: 9am to 4pm

So much more than your standard flea market…!
The Winter Market at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe is back…and bigger and more eclectic than ever!
For nine years visitors and collectors from all over the globe have made Winter Market a priority for any visit to Santa Fe and for good reason; nowhere else in the world can casual browsers and serious collectors alike find as fascinating an array of Americana, international folk art, vintage Western memorabilia, tribal and global fine art in one single location.
Whether intrigued by Native American jewelry and art, vintage and antique American and Western furniture and collectibles, books, textiles, clothing or global art from more than forty countries, Winter Market – quite literally – brings the world to Santa Fe.

Open October 1, 2016 through May 28, 2017, the Winter Market at El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe is located in the historic Railyard District and directly across from the Farmer’s Market. Admission is free, parking is easy and the experience is truly unforgettable

The Gallery will be open this weekend October 7th and 8th. all day

This weekend October 7th. and 8th. 2017 the gallery will be open 9am to 6pm. This is a magical time to come visit Northern New Mexico and the Abiquiu Studio Tour is an excellent destination! My Gallery is only 12 miles east of State Road 84 on State Road 554. This  weekend I will be offering a 20% discount on all photographs in the Gallery. Looking forward to seeing you and sharing my work

2017 El Rito Studio Tour coming up September 30th and October 1, 2017

 

This year should be an exciting time to come to the tour. We have new artists showing their work and of course late September, early October is a wonderful time to visit Northern New Mexico.
I have been working with a new lens that was designed in the late 1800’s, The Petzval Portrait Lens, and was retrofitted to fit my Hasselblad 120mm lens by Dennis Ivanichek. It is a departure from my previous work and I am truly enjoying the new images and look forward to sharing them with you. Also lunch at our famous Northern New Mexico Restaurant, El Farolito, is an experience not to be missed.
Looking forward to seeing old friend and meeting new ones.
AHO, David
