Born in Dublin in 1975, Tony worked as a photojournalist before breaking into fashion photography. He worked and lived in Barcelona until he moved to Los Angeles where he honed his signature style that is evocative, provocative and instantly recognisable.
Today he is often described as a visual storyteller who implicitly understands the craft of subtext. His photographs seduce the viewer beyond first glance, inviting them to peel back the glossy veneer and discover work that challenges stereotypes, reverses roles and confronts taboos.
Tony Kelly productions are renowned for their theatricality and spontaneity. His natural enthusiasm persuades celebrities to step out of their comfort zone, while his high-octane pace allows him to negotiate extravagant sets and imaginative tableaus.
