The LIFE Photographers



The LIFE Photographers, New York, 1960

Monroe Gallery of Photography is pleased to announce "The LIFE Photographers", an exhibition concurrent with the publication of the new book LIFE: The Day Kennedy Died, 50 Years Later LIFE Remembers the Man & the Moment. The exhibition opens with a public reception and book signing by renowned LIFE editor Richard Stolley on November 29, and will continue through January 24, 2014. The famous Zapruder film first appeared in LIFE, after being acquired by Richard B. Stolley.

LIFE magazine photographers had unparalleled access to John and Jacqueline Kennedy, from even before they were married. The exhibition features a special selection of well-known historical Kennedy photographs and several seldom-seen rare images of the now-famous Kennedy mystique that was "Camelot".

LIFE published an astonishing number of the most memorable photographs ever made, and the exhibition also includes many of these photographs from defining moments of the 20th century. LIFE photographers work and lives pioneered, and came to define, the medium of photojournalism, and their photographs recorded history and informed us all for most of the 20th Century. "The LIFE Photographers" exhibition is made even more poignant by the recent passing of Bill Eppridge (at age 75, in October).
