Since 1996, photographer Kenneally has documented the families in her Brooklyn neighborhood, witnessing their struggles with poverty, social institutions, and drugs. Her poignant, psychological photographs span generations, tracing everyday people and narrating their tales of hope and despair. She chronicles pregnancies and births, institutions and streets, and shows a community of inner-city families both full of life and still institutionalized by the welfare system. Her work is fully present, alive to the moment, realistic. Her images draw us to experience the depths and complexities of family life in the American social and justice systems, and the nearly total abandonment of the poor.
