SHFT + Annenberg: David Hume Kennerly
A contributing photographer to the seminal WAR/PHOTOGRAPHY exhibition at the Annenberg Space for Photography, David Hume Kennerly has been shooting on the front lines of history 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. Some of the most important images of armed conflict were shot by his camera. In the turbulent 1960s, David had the opportunity to document not only the war in Vietnam but the protest movement in America. Here he discusses that time in his career, and a couple of the most significant photos that came from it.
