David LaBelle: “Bridges and Angels: The Story of Ruth” lecture
January 28, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The School of Media’s Photojournalism department would like to invite you and your students to come meet photographer, author, teacher, motivational speaker and lover of life David LaBelle as he presents lessons he has learned in his 50-year career at a lecture presentation on the campus of WKU. LaBelle will reveal his emotional connection to the purpose and meaning behind why he wanted to share with the world the death of his mother in his 350-page recently released novel. It is a story that you will not soon forget.
LaBelle, an internationally known photographer, teacher, author and motivational speaker, grew up on a frog farm in Oak View, California, exploring the creeks and hills with two sisters and two brothers and numerous dogs. He began his photojournalism career as a weekend sports-shooter and lab man at the Ventura County Star-Free Press in California while still in high school. During his 50-year career, David has worked for a mix of 20 different newspapers and magazines. He has also worked at four universities across the United States, which includes several years here at Western Kentucky University.
