The College of Communication and the Arts at the University of Toledo was honored to present “Witness: the Power of the Photographic Image with David Hume Kennerly”.
In a career of more than 50 years in photography, David Hume Kennerly has been present at and documented many notable moments of the 20th century: Nixon’s famous farewell from the White House, the Ali-Frazier fight of 1971, combat during the Vietnam War, and RFK’s speech just before his assassination. James Earl Jones once said of this photographer’s presence at history in the making, “David Hume Kennerly is like Forrest Gump, except he was really there.”
At age 25, Kennerly won the 1972 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography. He is a Contributing Editor for Newsweek Magazine, and has traveled to more than 140 countries on assignment. From 1974-1977, he had the honor of serving as President Gerald R. Ford’s personal photographer.
