Josephine Herrick was first known for her work with New York City debutants, but her legacy in photography is also tied to her work with veterans returning home from war in need of healing, holistic healing.

In honor of our water-based warriors of the U.S. Navy, Marines and Coast Guard, New York City celebrates with its 27th annual Fleet Week. During this week span of time, citizens of NY and the tri-state area are invited to board and tour ships docked in Manhattan and Staten Island for just this purpose. This year, photographers Krista Kennell and Camille Tokerud from the JHP family were invited to capture moments of sailors and supporters as they experienced a small taste of the world our soldiers live within.

Fleet Week began in 1935 and is a tradition that continues to excite major cities. We are honored to have the opportunity to walk a bit in the shoes of our namesake. And though Fleet Week has passed, we continue to honor our soldiers and continue the commitment and legacy of bringing photography programs to veterans.
