Mikael Kennedy At the Chelsea Hotel

“In 2002 I was twenty-three years old. David Lamb and I were leaving the blood bank in Seattle where we went twice a week to make 45 dollars selling our blood…I sold my blood to buy expired Polaroid film where I could find it, and when that didn't work I would steal it... We had no jobs, we had no plan…I told David that this was to be the plan: No plan. I said we'd ‘Shoot The Moon.’ Like in the game of Hearts, you collect all the bad cards you win, you get almost all of them but not all, you lose. So I started collecting my cards in the frame of a Polaroid.” - Mikael Kennedy
