Robert Kenney realized his interest in photography in his late twenties
at which time he embarked on what would become a long and varied career. Entirely self-taught, Robert has photographed professionally for the past 27 years, enjoying numerous influential and creative collaborations.
His shift to art-based projects reflects his desire to raise awareness in himself, and in others, about the circumstances of the choices we make.
He currently lives and works in Vancouver, Canada.
Robert Kenney’s (dis)placed series examines the relationship between humanity and nature. Through a process of ‘normalization’ we have become desensitized to our deteriorating connection with the natural world. This is demonstrated by our increasing tolerance of wastefulness, intrusion and planetary negligence.
The (dis)placed series draws attention to the natural landscape in spare environments, where the apparent anomaly of the displaced object is magnified. Where focus turns to the urban environment, we become displaced in a jarring visual confluence.
Our unconscious acceptance of our seperated relationship with nature as an expected casualty of civilized progression is the canard.

Goddess is a deep reverance to the enigma. She is mother, father, earth,
wind, fire, water. She is powerful, natural, mysterious, sexual, playful, spiritual,
unfathomable, divine, a gypsy and a sprite, the guardian of the intuitive
and the creator of the universe.
Without her there is nothing.
Travel with respect, she is not as fragile as you have been led to believe.
Goddess is an ongoing project.
