Mikael Kennedy (Whitney's pick)

1.Mikael Kennedy is a photographer who has inspired me in many ways. His images made with a Holga camera spurred me to try a Holga, and his newest work, Polaroids taken with a Polaroid SX-70 actually convinced me to try the SX-70 myself. My favorite part of Mikael's Polaroids is the sense of memory and nostalgia that are almost always present...His exposures aren't always perfect and the images aren't always 100% sharp, which contributes to a feeling a spontaneity, of recording specific moments.

2. Mikael's work has some similarities to Rinko Kawauchi's work - both artist's focus on the everyday and they both use color as a tool to evoke emotion or reaction.
