Pulitzer Prize photographer to speak in KC; KSPA students may request interviews

David Hume Kennerly, a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, is scheduled to speak Tuesday, Nov. 3, at the World War I Museum at the Liberty Memorial in midtown Kansas City. He’ll show his photographs in a slide show presentation at the memorial after his reception and is being made available for interviews by student-journalists. The entire program — reception, exhibition and slide show — begins at 4 p.m. and will end at approximately 8 p.m.

The show is being sponsored by Digital Labrador, a KC-based store that specializes in digital photography. (And, yeah, it’s in Missouri, but just across the border.)

Students and advisers interested in attending and/or requesting an interview with Kennerly should contact Shari Hartbauer at Digital Labrador, 125 Southwest Blvd., KCMO, 64108, 816-841-9624 or [email protected]

From Kennerly’s biography: “Kennerly has been shooting on the front lines of history for more than 40 years. He has photographed eight wars, as many U.S. presidents, and he has traveled to dozens of countries along the way. At 25, the Roseburg, Oregon native won the 1972 Pulitzer Prize for his photos of the Vietnam War, and two years later was appointed President Gerald R. Ford’s personal photographer.
