Kennedy’s images are materialized through the traditional analogue technique of Platinum/Palladium printing, of which he is widely considered to be one of the best in the world. He teaches private landscape, portrait and platinum/palladium darkroom. Students come from all over the globe to study with this master photographer and printer. His state of the art darkroom is open to visitors to tour and see first hand how and where his work is made.
David's impressive and vast body of work includes iconic portraits of musicians, actors and artists. Visitors often find themselves stumbling onto recognizable pictures of Bob Dylan, Debbie Harry or Willie Nelson –pictures that they have known well and for years-but now have the opportunity to meet the artist and hear the stories behind the famous images.
"A Beggar had been sitting by the side of the road for over 30 years. When a stranger walked by, “spare some change?” the beggar asked holding up his old baseball cap. I have nothing to give you the stranger replied. Then the stranger asked “what are you sitting on?” “Nothing” replied the beggar “just an old box that I’ve been sitting on for as long as I can remember”. “Ever look inside?” asked the stranger. “No” said the beggar “what’s the point? There is nothing inside” insisted the beggar. “Have a look inside” insisted the stranger. The beggar managed to pry open the lid with astonishment, disbelief and elation he saw the box was full of gold. I am that stranger who has nothing to give you and is telling you to look inside, not inside any box but somewhere even closer inside yourself."
