A young photographer based out of Seattle contacted me a while ago asking if he could tag along on a tour I am sharing with Bart Budwig for a few weeks. His name is Matthew Kennelly. I took a look at some of his work and instantly said yes. He 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. And I'm honored to have him on the road with us. At just 22 he has the understated grace of a seasoned photographer, hanging back, unnoticed, getting all the real shots without disrupting the scene. I'll be highlighting some of his work here over the next few days. Right now, you can find a collection of his work at:
HERE IS SOME OF HIS WORK. AMAZING.
