Notes on “Saltwater River Guard”
In ‘Saltwater River Guard’ we are invited along with Kennedy on his extensive travels, viewing a focused moment: the summer of 2009 and two trips that took him to the rivers and shorelines of New England. Kennedy’s landscape photography in recent years has been likened to the work of the Hudson River Painters; described as a blending of the sublime and the vision of Trancendentalists, it is a view of man’s search for his place in nature. Drawing upon the classic myth of The Odyssey’ for its’ title, The Odysseus presents us with the vision of a solitary man on a quest for Home. In Kennedy’s vision of the world, Home becomes more of an emotion, and a sense of place rather than any one physical destination.

Kennedy’s Polaroid work -- a documentation of his life, travel, and surroundings, began in 1998 with the discovery of a used Polaroid SX70 camera. The Polaroid camera quickly became a constant companion, leading to 12 years of documenting and cataloging his wandering life. It is in this blending of these two bodies of work, which gives the viewer both the journey and the destination in this unique exhibition.
