Gives Glimpses Of Ford PRESIDENTIAL SEAL ... adorns Ford's office floor WASHINGTON (AP) -Prss- ident Ford riding to work. Huddled with Henry Kissinger. Arm in arm with Barry Coldwater. At hts office, feet on desk. Through the eyes and cameras of 27-year-old David Hume Kennerly, the nation is getting remarkable glimpses of its new President. Ford promised an "open and candid" administration, and Kennerly, to his admitted surprise, has a big part in that effort. Formerly assigned to Ford by Time Magazine, he became one of the 38th President's first appointees: official White House photographer. And his production, compared with that of his predecessors in the Nixon While House, is off to a fast and impressive start. Instead of an occasional stock photo of the President shaking hands with the visiting diplo mat or mayor, Kennerly is aiming his lenses from every angle -- informal as well as ceremonial; ordinary circumstance as well as presidential pomp. The regular White House news corps, of course, is getting a bigger piece of the action as well, and Ford promises that this new measure of availability will continue. But no body expects the dozens of re porters and photographers to have totally free reign in the executive mansion. But Kennedy, by his own ac count, does have it. TOTAL ACCESS "Total access," he says, add ing that it's a privilege un precedented in the history o show what it's like to be 'resident of the United States. The accompanying pictures are among the first such at- empts. That Kennerly has an unusu- illy close relationship with Â·"ord is disputed by no otic. Some of the Secret -Service men, perhaps with a touch of envy, have taken to calling him y a different name: "David Ford." Early last week, Kennerly vas lurking near the Oval Of- icc when Ford appeared at the door and asked him to come and take a picture of himself and a friend. Kennerly casually replied: 'Mr. President. I've already ;aken it." Salaried at $32,000 per year, Cennerly strikes a most unlike- y figure on the White House staff. He ta bearded) his dress s as casual as his exuberant conversation.
