Hard Earned: The Military Photographs of Stacy Pearsall & the Veterans Portrait Project

May 8 – September 15, 2023


A graduate of the Newhouse school’s military photojournalism program, Stacy Pearsall ‘04 started her military career at 17 when she enlisted in the Air Force. Her insight into military movement and action allowed her to be deliberate in her photographs – resulting in images that instead of depicting the heat of battle they display the quiet moments of combat, haunting in their false tranquility. The photos remind the viewer that war is not just the front lines – battle includes camaraderie, solitude, and patience. Now medically retired from combat photography, Pearsall continues to photograph veterans for her Veterans Portrait Project.

Curated by Theresa Moir Engelbrecht, G’17.
