About

By turning the lens on herself, Kennedy Toomey’s thesis 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 serves as the Social Media Manager for PCA&D’s student run gallery, CORE Gallery. In 2021, Toomey completed an internship with Roy Cox Studios in Baltimore, MD and since has accepted a freelancing position as a video editor for Sweetish Candy in Lancaster. 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.
