The Alchemy of David

Nicholas Woytuk
United States, 2023, 14 min.

In English.
Includes adult language.

David Michael Kennedy’s photography is more than art — it’s alchemy. Without the fickle, laborious process of printing with platinum and palladium, his compositions would lack the emotional depth he is celebrated for. In this intimate documentary film, David outlines his journey from the busy streets of New York City to the peaceful deserts of New Mexico, defends the analog process of image making, and questions the artistic validity of digital photography.
