David Hume Kennerly is like Forrest Gump, except he was really there.
- JAMES EARL JONES
David Kennerly once said to me, ”˜In photography everything can be taught, except how to see.' In his photographs”¦ we see people and historical events through the keen, alert eye of an eminent camera artist.
- HERMAN WOUK, / Author of “The Winds of War
Kennerly modestly refers to himself as a ”˜political photographer.' That's true, as far as it goes. But it's like calling Matthew Brady a ”˜war photographer' or Thomas Eakins a ”˜Philadelphia portrait painter.' Kennerly is as good as it gets in a craft he defined.
