MATTHEW KENNELLY

Edmonds, WA

         Biography          CV          Statement          

Growing up in and around a small family business while naturally attracted to the wallflowers of society, by consequence Kennelly has a strong work ethic and deep passion for people as seen in his ultra personal glimpses into others lives. A self proclaimed documentarian of faults and glories, Kennelly hopes for his work to break the barrier between stranger and friend, despair and hope, fantasy and reality.

[Kennelly] has an uncanny eye for capturing people in a way that is profoundly affecting— he somehow gets their stories, their movement, their faults and glories all crammed into a single shot. […] He has the understated grace of a seasoned photographer, hanging back, unnoticed, getting all the real shots without disrupting the scene.”

— Jeffrey Martin

“IN THE BLOOD” A PHOTO STORY BY MATTHEW KENNELLY

“While In The Blood is in the process of becoming a book of its entirety, this series of images explore man’s relationship
with nature, machinery,
humans, and himself.”

“This series of images from In The Blood is an invitation to step into the dance of our social, economical, and geographically estranged neighbor. When I began my two year documentation of Andrew Albert’s farm in Arlington, WA, my hope was to create an educational commentary on agriculture, but what I came to see was less of a need for facts and a greater need to share what farming requires of one’s character.”

– Matthew Kennelly
