Pulitzer-Winning Guest Photographer Captures Moments at Camp 2011


Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, David Hume Kennerly volunteered his keen eye to capture the final days of Camp 2011. When he and his wife were not watching the performances of their own children, who were attending Camp this summer, David wandered the campus, capturing moments in rehearsals and performances.

Kennerly has been a noted photojournalist for more than 45 years. He has photographed eight wars, as many U.S. presidents, and has traveled to dozens of countries along the way. He won the Pulitzer Prize in 1972 and numerous other awards and honors since. Even those who do not know Kennerly’s name would recognize his many iconic images of Vietnam, the White House and various events from the last four decades.

He served as the official White House photographer for President Gerald Ford.

In addition to his work for print publications, he has also worked in television and produced several films.

“Mr. Kennerly brings extraordinary experience and is an amazing photographer,” noted Jeffrey Kimpton, president of Interlochen Center for the Arts. “It was a pleasure to welcome a photographer and journalist of his stature to our campus. In his short visit, he successfully captured some of creative energy of Interlochen Arts Camp.”
