Over a glittering 50-year career, award-winning photojournalist Harry Benson has covered the central events and personalities of our time. With a range that is unequaled - from the Beatles to Bosnia, from world leaders to thousands of the most glamorous celebrities - Benson's unforgettable images have found their way onto the pages (and often the covers) of such major magazines as Life, Vanity Fair, the New Yorker, and People. Benson has a lifetime of photographs to show and stories to tell in this fabulous retrospective of his work. As John Loengard, former picture editor of Life and People, says: "He knows where it is important to go and what it is important to see. What he sees informs us all."

Harry Benson has had 36 oneman exhibitions of his photographs. He has twice been named magazine photographer of the year by the National Press Photographers Association and the University of Michigan, among numerous other honors.From Library Journal:
Assigned to photograph the Beatles in 1964, the Scottish-born Benson followed them to New York and never went home. Benson photographs people, and through great talent, abundant patience, and lucky timing he delivers telling portraits of celebrities, politicians, athletes, artists, and unknowns. These images give uncanny insight into Benson's subjects and what they really care about, succeeding whether his subjects pose, primp, relax, or collapse in fatigue. When Caroline Kennedy was married, Jackie Onassis hired Benson to photograph the wedding. When the reborn Vanity Fair was teetering, its editors hired Benson to photograph the Reagans, and the magazine was energized. When People magazine needs covers, it hires Benson, who has shot 100 of its best. In this excellent book, Benson selects images representing 50 years of work (probably his favorite people) and adds his recollection of the setup for each shot some joyous, some tragic. Recommended.
