About Me

“I just be takin pictures.”


Kennedi Carter is a Durham, North Carolina based photographer, whose work focuses on both fashion as well as the sociopolitical aspects of African American culture. She collaborates and photographs different creatives she encounters in her hometown. She interprets what it means to be 'black' in relation to fashion, creativity and in society as well. 

Pop culture in America has created a small binary in which blackness is allowed to exist, especially in relation to fashion and media. Blackness has been allowed to function simply as inspiration to draw from and a spectacle to gawk at. Kennedi aims to reinvent the image of what it means to be creative, confident, and "Black" through her photographs. 


My work focuses on capturing a moment on portraiture, lifestyle imagery, as well as lighting.

Always experimenting with new techniques, I'm equally comfortable with analog and digital technologies, and use both according to the needs of the project.
