Photo Du Jour: A Picture-a-Day Journey Through the First Year of the New Millennium

Front Cover
University of Texas Press, Oct 1, 2002 - Photography - 222 pages
This is Kennerlys visual diary of the texture of life at the start of the 21st century. As he traveled more than a quarter of a million miles across 38 states and seven countries, Kennerly took a picture every single day in the year 2000, using just one camera and one lens. Some offer candid, behind-the-scenes glimpses of the men who would be president - John McCain, Al Gore, and George W. Bush. Most of the photographs, though, seek to capture not the big, historic moments but rather the ordinary, even whimsical moments when the essence of a person or a place reveals itself to the observer who takes the time and has the heart to really see.
