Mikael Kennedy is a photographer living and working in New York City. He is the author of the internationally acclaimed Polaroid travel blog: Passport to Trespass and his Polaroid work is represented by the Peter Hay Halpert Fine Art Gallery of New York City.
His photographs are part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, TX as well as in private collections nationwide.
Shown are photographs from the series Between Wolf & Dog. Deriving it’s title from the French saying “L’heure entre chien et loupe” which refers to the golden hour of sunset, Between Wolf & Dog is the exploration of wild and domestic as seen through the life and adventure of Polaroid photographer Mikael Kennedy. Rather than focusing on the specific time of day, Kennedy’s latest series looks to the notion of wild and domestic as two forces to choose from, two forces in conflict. Presented in 34 Polaroids from Kennedy’s life and travels (and from the last days of Passport to Trespass) Kennedy finds moments when his subjects, either landscape or portraits’ innate liminality is fully exposed. It is that struggle, that tension between the two worlds of night and day, of domestic and wild that Kennedy finds himself and his subjects existing in, what he refers to as “A fine line of wild”.
