Kevin Michael Connolly

Kevin Connolly was born in Helena, Montana in August of 1985. Born without legs, Kevin was otherwise a healthy baby and grew up like any other Montana kid; getting dirty, running in the woods, and getting dirty some more.

Kevin began taking photographs during Spring of 2005 and quickly fell in love with the medium. In 2006, Kevin ventured down to New Zealand and began to cultivate a unique and practical solution to get around – a skateboard. It was on his return home in the winter of 2006, that Kevin began work on a photo series entitled, The Rolling Exhibition – a photo series that grappled with the stares and attention that he received in countries around the world.

Kevin used his success as a professional skier to fund his international work on The Rolling Exhibition and in October of 2007, gave his first public presentation on the series. Since then, The Rolling Exhibition has been featured on ABC, BBC, NPR, and media outlets around the world.
