Mikael Kennedy has captured thousands of photos, logged countless lonely miles, published seven books, shot designers like The Hill-Side, Rogue’s Gallery and Moscot, shown at New York’s Chelsea Hotel, and graced Secret Forts, Corduroy, and GQ. But he got there by discarding the map, by refusing to set a destination. He’s arrived, in a way, but his journey is far from over. Not an end point, just pausing in a high place to enjoy the view.
And you can enjoy the view yourself: from June 30 to July 17 his work will make a stopover at Vancouver’s Catalog Gallery in the form of fifty beautiful, unknowable women collectively known as Pieces of the Moon. Mikael took a moment to talk to us about his changing life and changing work. Read on to see his answers and some sneak shots from Pieces.
