You may not recognize his name but you probably have seen his photographs.
Kevin Fleming has covered the world as a photographer for National Geographic and has recently been recognized America’s Best Observer by Readers Digest. His assignments have taken him into war and famine, to the Mediterranean for a re-creation of the voyage of Ulysses and put him on a dogsled crossing the Canadian arctic.
Kevin has worked in 26 countries photographing subjects as diverse as the sub-atomic world of high-energy physics and New Zealand sheep ranchers. While reporting on the Sinai Peninsula in 1981, Kevin came under the assassins’ gunfire that killed Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. He escaped with some of the few images of that tragic moment.
A Delaware native,
Kevin began his career as a newspaper photographer after attending
Wesley College (where he has been inducted into their Hall of Fame).
He then spent a decade as a National Geographic
photographer and most recently has concentrated on creating books.
His photography has won many national and international awards.
For The Heart of America, Kevin spent years crisscrossing our nation from Florida’s Everglades to the summit of Alaska’s Mt. McKinley. Traveling in helicopters, hot air balloons, kayaks, and on horseback to capture the heart and soul of America. He brings us a warm, funny, openhearted exploration of America and Americans with his compelling photographs and stories from the back roads, people and places seldom seen.
September 11th changed Kevin’s life forever and he hopes that The Heart of America will show the Nation and the World the strength, beauty, and character of America!
