Stacy Pearsall got her start as an Air Force photographer at the age of 17. During three combat tours, she earned the Bronze Star Medal and Air Force Commendation with Valor. She is one of only two women to win the National Press Photographer’s Association Military Photographer of the Year competition, and the only woman to have won it twice. Though combat disabled and retired from military service, Pearsall has not let her disabilities hold her back. With her service animal Charlie by her side, she continues to work worldwide as an independent photographer and is an author, educator, military consultant, public speaker and founder of the Veterans Portrait Project. This exhibition presents 35 works highlighting Pearsall’s combat photography as well as selections from her award-winning series, The Veterans Portrait Project. Organized by Syracuse University art Galleries, Syracuse, NY.
