Lindsey Kennedy is a Kansas-raised, Santa Fe-based photographer whose work explores perceptions of time and assignments of value. Her work combines digital, film and instant photography, taking as many routes to image-making as possible. She earned a degree in political science and began her career in journalism, experience that infused an analytical intention into her photographic practice. Her approach questions what we covet and who we are, accessing the absurdity and callousness of human wastefulness. The experience of photographing personal spaces colors her work with a tenderness and tangible distaste of encroaching on the privacy of others. Her practice is solitary, a meditative experience, often exploring the evidence of persons and spaces unknown.
Don’t Be That Way
“Don’t be that way” approaches the final stages within the life cycles of our things. Turning a nostalgic and anthropomorphizing eye to unfamiliar neighborhoods, it seeks what is left behind, discarded or unnoticed. Captured in the southern US in 2018 this work approaches empty scenes in ways that can be at once melancholy and saccharine.
