About Kennerly Fine Prints
Kennerly photographs have been exhibited in many galleries and museums around the world and have been acquired by persistent collectors. However, he has never had the time or ability to focus on fine prints – until now. Recently, Kennerly has created a small edit of about 150 undiscovered gems, many from early work that has been unseen for decades. The galleries on this site represent some of Kennerly’s best-known work, a limited-edition portfolio of his 11-image Pulitzer Prize-winning portfolio, and a never-before-seen collection of his hidden images.
Each David Hume Kennerly fine print is created under his supervision. All are approved, signed, and authenticated by Kennerly.
Vintage prints are mostly made with a fiber silver gelatin process. They range in date from the 1960s to the early 2000s, with later vintage prints being made by Kennerly’s longtime master printer, David Healey. Their relationship lasted for more than a decade while Kennerly worked as contributing editor for Newsweek Magazine. Among other high-profile collaborations between them, Healey printed Kennerly’s 2002 exhibition at the Smithsonian of images from his book, Photo du Jour.
Contemporary fine prints are made in partnership with Hugh Milstein at Digital Fusion in Los Angeles using an archival pigment process on acid-free substrate. Standard paper sizes for contemporary prints are 16” x 20” and 20” x 24”. Large format prints are made with custom sizing to best suit the overall work. All contemporary prints can be custom-sized, if desired.
Prints made by Digital Fusion will be on Hanenühle Glossy Fine Art Baryta 325 gsm paper. Each print is titled, signed and dated by David Hume Kennerly and stamped on the verso.
