Overview

The last thirty years of American history have produced a compelling range of images: Vietnam and the student protests, Robert Kennedy's assassination and Richard Nixon's election, the trauma of Watergate and the recovery under Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter, the fragile beginnings of peace in the Middle East and the crumbling of the Soviet Union. David Hume Kennerly's astonishing photographs of these and many other events that shaped our times are among the images forever imprinted in our memories. Kennerly was always there with his camera - on the battlefield, at ringside, or behind closed doors in the Oval Office. This eyewitness collection presents over 250 of his most dramatic photographs, many published here for the first time. Augmented by Kennerly's first-hand recollections of the historic events he witnessed, the photographs range from an early Supremes concert through Jonestown, with vivid coverage of Vietnam and other wars, the final days of the Nixon presidency, the inside workings of the Ford Administration, and groundbreaking events in international diplomacy.

What People Are Saying

Diane Sawyer

Dave and his camera are witnesses of life-the grit, the humanity, the struggle and the joy. And it's all here.

Gerald R. Ford
President and Mrs. Gerald R. Ford

David Hume Kennerly worked professionally and discreetly behind the scenes during the Ford Administration. His pictures were insightful, dramatic and an honest record of what it was really like to be President and First Lady. His book documents that turbulent period and many other significant events in our recent history. He is both our friend and photographer-like a member of the family. Photo Op is an outstanding achievement.

Kennerly's Photo Op is an extraordinary personal journey through the last thirty years. His photographs will put you into the middle of the Vietnam war, ringside with Ali Frasier, on the spot at Jonestown, and at the core of other momentous episodes. This will sweep you through the events that shaped a generation. Photo Op is as good as being there.

Mikhail Gorbachev
Mikhail Gorbachev

My first 'meeting' with David Hume Kennerly was via the pictures that he took at my Geneva summit with President Reagan. His exclusive coverage of both that and the Reykjavik summit is a valuable and impressive record. It is more than photography-it is history.

David is one of the best photojournalists of all time.
