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. 

Historically, American pop culture has created a small binary in which blackness is allowed to function, especially in relation to fashion and media. She aims to reinvent the image of what it means to be creative, confident, and "Black" through her photographs. Kennedi explores the idea of blackness in relation to editorial photography through representation, showing that black culture is not only a spectacle that sparks inspiration, but one that is appropriated as well.


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.
