Jack Kenny


Jack Kenny is a photographer living in Ann Arbor, MI. From 1983 until the present, he has been the owner of Quicksilver Photo, Plymouth, MI. In 1996 he took his first trip to Cuba and has returned more than 35 times, first to work on the web site http://www.Cuba-Photo.com which has approximately 4000 pictures of Cuba, and then to work on a B&W photo exhibit of Cuba. In addition, he is a dealer in Cuban photography and art, including the work of the famous Cuban photographers, “Korda” and Osvaldo and Roberto Salas.

Prior to the Cuba project, Kenny’s work was primarily studio photography, specializing in B&W nudes. He has exhibited in galleries in southeast Michigan and had his first one man show dedicated to the nude in Havana, Cuba in February of 1997.

Kenny has created a 70 piece B&W traveling exhibit entitled “Cuba - Revolution Then & Now” which includes 35 16x20 sepia toned prints of his photos, 15 famous photos of the Cuban Revolution, and 20 archival photos of Cuba. This exhibit was first shown at the University of Michigan in September of 2003. It was next at Marygrove College in Detroit and then at Northville Camera in Northville, MI. It was shown at the Plymouth Community Arts Council in October 2005 and is scheduled to go to UMASS, Boston in the fall of 2006.

His book, Cuba - Photographs by Jack Kenny, was published by Corazon Press (CorazonPress.com) in September of 2005. It is a 12x12 hardcover coffee-table book with 106 duo-tone images of life in Cuba today. He continues to travel to Cuba and hopes to publish a book of his color work in the near future.

In addition to his Cuba projects and the studio nudes, Kenny works in portraiture and product photography. He is a still photographer for film and advertising and for special events.

Current exhibits include works from the book. Kenny is represented by The Tom James Gallery of Fine Art in Northville, MI.
