David Michael Kennedy (born August 16, 1950) is a photographer living and working in New Mexico, USA. His career spans more than 35 years and includes an 18-year stint in New York City where he was known as a specialist in photography for the advertising and music industries,[1] producing album covers and editorial spreads for artists that include Muddy Waters, Bruce Springsteen, Blondie and Bob Dylan.[2] Although he has won numerous awards for his photography,[citation needed] he stated in early 2010 that he had not entered competitions since 1992.[3]

In 1986 Kennedy moved to northern New Mexico and began documenting the Western landscape and Native American culture, and became involved in Native American causes.[1] His photographs of Native Americans and their culture have been exhibited in Westchester.[4] William Zimmer writes that "the respectful Indian pictures bring to light aspects of [Native American] culture that are often hidden".[5] His work is in The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery
