Kennedy Center Honors



I felt very honored when asked to provide one of my photos of The Police for the 2014 John F. Kennedy Center Honor Program.


An executive producer said that they really wanted to use a photo I made of Sting, Andy Summers and  Stewart (Stu) Copeland of The Police nearly 40 years ago.


My photo of The Police was to be used in a short biography film on Sting at the award ceremony at the Kennedy Center in December 2014 in Washington DC .


The Sting segment was introduced by Meryl Streep to President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Steven Spielberg, Jane Fonda, Whoopie Goldberg, Tom Hanks, and Al Green, to name a few. Among others, Lady Gaga and Bruce Springsteen provided the music.
