Kansas City Star photojournalist David Eulitt has covered it all in his thirteen years with the news organization. If you follow the Kansas City Chiefs you have undoubtedly seen his work. He has spent the last decade covering the men in red. Remember the photo of the enormous crowd of Kansas City Royals fans in front of Union Station gathered to cheer on their heroes at the end of the World Series victory parade. It was hard to miss. It took up the front page AND the back page of the A-section of the next day’s paper. That was one of Eulitt’s. He shot it from high atop the Liberty Memorial. He was also on the front row at Citi Field in New York when the Royals won game five of the Series.
Eulitt is not all about making incredible images of just sports though. If you follow The Star, you’ll see just what he sees when he’s assigned to make photos of the best barbeque in town or what happens when a small town says its final farewells to their beloved country doctor. Maybe you recall seeing his series of portraits of WWII vets who were asked to share their memories of what it was like to hear that the war in Europe had ended.
It’s not hard to find a great photo in Eulitt’s year-end portfolio. The hard part is whittling down everything he shot in 2015 to his five favorites. That’s what the photo editors at The Star asked him to do. Watch to see which photos Eulitt chose as his favorite images of the year and listen to his comments on what moved him to choose each image as one of his favorites. Enjoy!
