Brenda Kenneally

Brenda Kenneally is a photographer who uses a camera to create a shared emotional space with the people and places she is drawn to photographing. She says that she takes pictures to remember what she learned while she was taking pictures. The photographs are never the point in themselves but rather serve as entry points to a shared humanity. Like all relationships, the ones that she develops through her camera take time and nurturing. Brenda says she doesn't know if one can capture time through photography, but she is never in a hurry when she is taking pictures. Some organizations that she has been funded by include the New York State Council for the Arts, Open Society Foundation, Getty Images, Canon, Nikon, W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund, Alicia Patterson Foundation, and Mother Jones.
