President Ford asked photojournalist David Hume Kennerly to be his White House photographer. Kennerly took the job, but only if he was granted more access than had been traditionally granted to photographers. It's awful that more heads of state haven't done the same. Kennerly's pictures show the intricate balance between family, friendship and statesmanship that each person in the White House must have to deal with. I don't think we'll see coverage of a president like this ever again, and that is tragic.
