More about Kenneally

Brenda Ann Kenneally is a Guggenheim and Soros Criminal Justice Media Fellow. She attended the University of Miami, where she earned a B.S. in sociology and photojournalism, and New York University, where she received an M.A. in studio art. Kenneally has focused on how families get lost in a culture of drugs and prison. She searches for ways to motivate inner-city women to empower themselves, despite their limited social and economic opportunities. Kenneally’s work has been featured in the New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Ms. Magazine, among other publications. In 2000, she won the Community Awareness Award from the National Press Photographer’s Association, and in 2001 she was awarded the International Prize for Photojournalism in Gijon, Spain. Kenneally’s work in Brooklyn has received support from the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund, the Mother Jones Documentary Fund, and the Nikon Sabbatical Grant, in addition to the Open Society Institute. Kenneally has worked with us exhibiting her photos, teaching photojournalism workshops, and curating several exhibitions.
