About Me

“I just be takin pictures.”


A Durham, North Carolina native by way of Dallas Texas, Kennedi Carter is a fine art photographer, retoucher and creative director with a primary focus on Black subjects. Her work highlights the aesthetics of sociopolitical aspects of blackness as well as the overlooked beauties of the black experience as a whole: skin, texture, trauma, peace, love and community. Her work aims to reinvent notions of creativity and confidence in the realm of blackness. 

Kennedi’s most recent work was featured in the 2018 Photo Vogue festival, The Nasher Museum of Art’s “Across County Lines” exhibit, the renowned Photoville Festival in Brooklyn, and VSCO's Walk In The Sun Exhibition. Kennedi will graduate with a B.A. in African American Studies at The University of North Carolina Greensboro in 2021.


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.
