46 pages, illustrations, wrappers, very good. By Sam Falk, Staff Photographer, New York Times Magazine. From the introduction: "Sam Falk was selected to write this text because he is a champion of available light for news photography. He has a long list of famous spot news jobs to his credit. His very first major assignment was a ten-week tour with the late President Coolidge. His racial integration story of Clinton, Tennessee, received wide attention, and he managed to sneak some forbidden shots at the sensational Halls-Mills murder trial pictures. " From the New York Times of May 21, 1991: Sam Falk, a photographer at The New York Times for more than 40 years, died on Sunday at the Sunrise Health Center in Sunrise, Fla. He was 90 years old and lived in Plantation, Fla. He died of heart failure, said his nephew, Howard Falk of Montclair, N. J. Mr. Falk, who was a pioneer in 35-millimeter photography at The Times, joined the staff in 1925 and during his career specialized in photographs of famous people and events. He toured with President Calvin Coolidge and covered national political conventions and championship boxing matches. He also covered the Lindbergh kidnapping trial, snapped finishes of the Kentucky Derby and roamed the United States and Europe taking pictures for The New York Times Magazine. His photographs were often the subject of one-man exhibitions, including one at the Smithsonian Institution that ran for 14 months. He retired in 1969.; 46 pages. N° de réf. du libraire 21560
