"Keeley's photographs, which deal with
the many facets of obsession, speak to the
internal search many individuals undergo
during the lifelong quest for meaning and
Capturing pain, longing, torment, despair,
hope, and love within the faces and forms
of his images, Keeley draws on his own
inner obsessive quest for knowledge as
inspiration. His images are unsympathetic,
and communicate the inner emotional
trauma of the homeless, the addicted,
and of the lonely, as well as pride and the
strength of human bonding experienced by
addicts in recovery. By revealing the
essence of his subjects, the works
magnify with often unsettling clarity
the pain of discovery, joy of friendships
born of pain, or turmoil of new journeys
that resound within each person. Through
these poignant images he challenges the
viewer to look within one's own heart,
to question, affirm, accept, or reject,
leaving one with valuable insights into
our own places in humanity."
