#OfCalifornia is an Instagram series built around the photographic documentation of the California landscape. We have selected some of our favorite photographers to give us their take on California. We will be featuring a new photographer every month.
For the Month of February we will be showcasing the work of Mikael Kennedy. Brooklyn based, Mikael finds any excuse to escape back to California. He has spent a great deal of his youth exploring every part of the State and as an accomplished photographer has captured a very intimate take on our Golden State.
“In November of 2013 I was talking to my friend Jeff Thrope who was bumming around California for the month. I was sitting in NYC staring out my window at the grey lady, dreaming of the open road. If you’ve never ridden highway one, there isn’t much that compares. I agreed to meet him in Big Sur two days later where he would be camping in a friend’s school bus parked on the top of Partington Ridge. We stayed there two nights and then rode the coast for days, Big Sur to Mendocino, a sleeping bag in the trunk and a bag of film in my lap.” – From the book ‘California’ by Mikael Kennedy published by Done To Death projects.
