(1912 – 2000)
“If a photograph can arrest you for a moment, then you’ve really got something.”
Ed Clark's career as a professional photographer spanned a period of 60 years, during which time he became an internationally known photojournalist.
Clark was present at many of the historic moments of the 20th Century. He photographed Hermann Goering, the German Luftwaffe commander at the Nuremberg war crime trials. He was the only photographer allowed in the Oval Office on Eisenhower's last day as President; he followed J.F.K. on the presidential campaign trail and was the only photographer invited to the reception when Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Becall wed.
