General Krulak Revisited
February 28, 2012
It’s always fun to get to revisit a person you’ve met and photographed before. It was my pleasure and honor to photograph Birmingham Southern College president General Charles Krulak nine months into his presidency. It had been nearly a year since I photographed him as his appointment was announced. This shoot, for The Chronicle of Higher Education story about how Birmingham Southern College is faring since Krulak began his duties, was a blend of candid shots and portraiture. General Krulak is a “people” person. He is upbeat and friendly to everyone he meets; deftly maneuvering through a crowd, yet genuine and immensely likable. He is very hands on, and has hit the ground running on campus, greeting prospective and current students with enthusiasm. He attends every school sporting event, lives in student housing and doesn’t take a salary for his work. Astounding and inspiring. Here are a few images from the couple of hours we spent together. Thanks to BSC’s Bill Wagnon and The Chronicle’s Erica Lusk for their support on this project!
