    The Creators of NYC: Polaroid Photographer Mikael Kennedy

    Josh Wool spent a decade as an executive chef, opening restaurants across the south. But all that changed in 2010, when the carpal tunnel in his hands meant he could no longer work. To keep from going stir crazy, he picked up a camera and found his next calling. Two years, thousands of portraits, and a move to New York later, Wool is documenting the people who inspire him on a daily basis. Welcome to Creators of NYC.

    Mikael Kennedy

    Mikael Kennedy is a travel-adventure photographer who specializes in Polaroids. He has documented his life and travels — from the jungles of Puerto Rico to the woods of Maine — for more than a decade, all housed on a travel blog called Passport to Trespass. I met with Mikael in his Greenpoint apartment to turn the lens on him.

    What drew you to Polaroids?

    The initial interest was purely aesthetic and functional; nothing else looked like a Polaroid, and as I was travelling and broke I didn’t have access to a darkroom. Polaroid being a self-contained process was a huge draw. There is also something inherently magical about a Polaroid; it’s a tactile experience. You are holding a photograph in your hand while it develops.
