Photographer David Hume Kennerly’s Exclusive Glimpse of Gerald Ford’s Presidency

The Editors


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.– Pulitzer Prize-winning and presidential photographer David Hume Kennerly’s exhibit “Extraordinary Circumstances: The Presidency of Gerald R. Ford” at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum in Grand Rapids, Michigan, will be extended through Nov. 3.


Because of the exhibit’s popularity, with nearly 30,000 visitors attending since it opened, viewers will now have an additional two months to visit the exhibit.


Kennerly’s collection of images includes the inner workings of the White House, the Ford family, and the end of Ford’s presidency after losing to Jimmy Carter in the 1976 election. This is the first time Kennerly's photos have been on display.


 Kennerly was named "One of the 100 Most Important People in Photography," by American Photo Magazine. He served as contributing editor for Newsweek for more than a decade and a contributing photographer for Time and Life magazines.


Kennerly has published several books of his work: “Shooter,” “Photo Op,” “Seinoff: The Final Days of Seinfeld,” “Photo du Jour,” “Extraordinary Circumstances: The Presidency of Gerald R. Ford,” and “David Hume Kennerly On the iPhone.” He covered the 2016 presidential campaign for CNN, and was a major contributor to the network’s book, “Unprecedented: The Election that Changed Everything.”  His exclusive photo of Donald Trump taken two weeks after he was elected was featured on the cover.


Selected photos from the exhibit are featured below.
