John Loengard: A Gifted Perspective





This is our second show of the superb photojournalism of notable LIFE magazine photographer John Loengard. He had his first show here over 20 years ago. Mr. Loengard was born in New York City in 1934. He first shot an assignment for LIFE in 1956 while studying at Harvard College. He joined LIFE’s staff in 1961 and in 1978 was instrumental in its re-birth as a monthly, serving as picture editor until 1987. His assignments from LIFE were very diverse, covering such subjects as Georgia O’Keeffe, The Beatles, T.S. Elliott and many other personalities. He also produced photographic essays on the Shakers and the Vanishing Cowboy.

He has authored a number of award winning books, and currently in publication are his monograph As I See It, published by Vendome Press along with his latest book Image and Imagination: Georgia O'Keeffe by John Loengard published by Chronicle Books. Commenting on photography, he once wrote, “Perishability is important in a picture. If a photograph looks perishable we say, ‘Gee, I'm glad I have that moment.’”

Most prints come in various sizes and reasonable prices, ranging from $1,500.00 to $3,000.00.
Please email or phone us (877.868.5462 / 214.871.9140) for exact sizes and prices.
