Noted photographer Andrew Kilgore has taken portraits of the likes former President Bill Clinton (when he was Arkansas governor), former U.S. Sen. David Pryor and a host of Arkansas-born stars who went on to make it in Hollywood. Kilgore's most recent project is photographing attendees of the Community Meals program at his church, St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Fayetteville.

Celebrated photographer Andrew Kilgore calls the photo collection “A Reluctance to Engage,” though his striking portraits of Community Meals patrons lining the east wall of the parish hall at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church depict his subjects as willing participants.
