Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

"I am a journalist," says John G. Morris, "but not a reporter and not a photographer." He is a picture editor--the person who selects which photos get used in a newspaper or magazine--and he's worked for some of the top names in the industry: at Life under Henry Luce, for Katherine Graham and Ben Bradlee at the Washington Post, and for Abe Rosenthal at the New York Times, where his bold page-one use of a photograph by Eddie Adams of the execution of a Vietcong suspect by Nyugen Ngoc Loan became one of the Vietnam War's most enduring images.

Morris, who also served as the first executive editor for the Magnum photojournalist press agency, looks back at his career in this lively memoir. Among the colleagues who turn up in anecdotes are Alfred Eisenstaedt, Lee Miller, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Robert Capa; the book leads with a grainy Capa photograph of the D-day landing, 1 of only 11 shots that survived a freak accident in the London photo labs of Life as Morris and his team raced against the clock to get images to America in time for the next issue. There are over 100 other powerful photographs, taken at the Japanese-American internment camp at Manzanar, the Nazi concentration camp at Majdanek, and the front lines of the Vietnam and Gulf Wars, and other locales. In addition to being a dynamic storyteller, Morris is also steadfast in his determination that photojournalists should be given the freedom--both in resources and lack of censorship--to provoke us into a new awareness of what is happening in the world. --Ron Hogan -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

James G. Morris describes himself as a journalist, yet not a writer or a photographer. He has spent a lifetime organizing photographers. For more than 50 years, he has commissioned, cajoled and cared about that unusual breed the photojournalist. "Get the Picture" is his richly illustrated personal account of a life that leads us from the heady days at "Life" (first as Hollywood correspondent, then, through the turbulent years of the second world war, as London picture editor) via the executive editorship of the legendary Magnum Photos, and positions as picture editor at "The Ladies Home Journal," "The Washington Post" and "The New York Times." A glance at the index gives some indication of the extraordinary world Morris lived through. --David Wason "Times Higher Education Supplement ""

His best stories from the field are not tagging along with Capa and Hemingway . . . or having drinks at the Ritz in Paris with Marlene Dietrich; they are his less flashy but moving descriptions of the Japanese internment camps in California.
--Leslie Cockburn "Los Angeles Times Book Review ""

Going through Morris s book of memories, I felt I was sitting in front of a magic lantern.
--Henri Cartier-Bresson"

[Morris] weaves photographers, anecdotes, players, history and a credo or two into an engaging and informative tale.
--Rosemary Ranck "New York Times Book Review ""
