An Adair hand in Kuwait, 1991. Photo by Peter Menzel 

This was a photo I purchased from Menzel and that was made a part of my exhibit titled,  Fire And Smoke, The Kuwait Oil Well Fires.

There were 39 images from Kuwait in this exhibit, including signage about each photograph, that made its way around Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma before being donated to the George H. Bush Presidential Library in College Station, where there is a permanent display about Kuwait that I helped curate. 


The donation entitled me to attend the opening ceremony for the library, with five former US presidents in attendance (front row seats!) and I was able to meet President Bush personally, as well to have received a personal letter from him.
