AboutBy turning the lens on herself, Kennedy Toomey’s collection investigates the complexities of non-sequential healing and how it has fostered growth in her marriage. Inspired by romanticism and neoclassical art, Toomey’s work challenges the male gaze as she documents the rebirth of herself and her partner. Her imagery speaks to learning how to live presently with the support of her husband through the combination of photography, video, embroidery, and poetry.
Kennedy Toomey currently collaborates with fellow photographers Toby Richards and Nick Gould as a digital assistant and retoucher. She previously served as the Social Media Manager for PCA&D’s student run gallery, CORE Gallery. Her work has been exhibited at The Ware Center for Visual and Performing Arts at Millersville University as well as curio. Gallery & Creative Supply in Lancaster. When she is not in the studio, Toomey enjoys spending her days foraging with her husband or curling up with a fantasy novel and her cat Salem.
