Kathleen Keenan is a writer and photographer whose lifelong love affair with Chicago…its people, places and purposes…is reflected in her art.
She has photographed Chicago in a way that offers a new perspective to even the most seasoned Chicagophile. Her photo book, CitySkapes With A Twist, captures defining moments happened upon while walking the city’s streets and beaches, and was featured on WGN News. The photo book will be viewable soon, and digital downloads of her work will also be available.
Keenan’s written work has appeared in many venues, including the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, Poetry Magazine and the Lincoln Park Cultural Center.
She has a BS and MA from Northwestern University and works in communications and media at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, formerly Children’s Memorial Hospital. Working at the hospital has given her the privilege to work with the most creative people on the planet: children. She has chronicled their stories in local and national outlets including broadcast, print, web, documentary and video.
Her work at Lurie Children’s was most recently featured in a USA TODAY story about the superhero window washers who have been popping up at children’s hospitals across the country. Browse the USA TODAY photo gallery for a look at Kathleen’s photos of the event.
Her coming website will help visitors learn more about Kathleen’s photography and writing, and the acclaim her work has received throughout Chicago and the rest of the country.
