Crime bosses, politicians, movie stars, artists. JFK, Marilyn, Elvis, Andy Warhol, Vince Lombardi — LIFE, in fact, for the last fifty years … as represented by LIFE magazine photographer Bill Ray.
This astonishing work of photojournalism is a literal jaw-dropper … I’ve been drooling on my desk all day. The photographs, naturally, are amazing, but Bill’s terse, ironic captions and extremely well-crafted accompanying narrative humanize this amazing documentary of international all-stars.
Bill writes, “I’ve often joked that only twice have I been in the presence of a living God, once with Frank Lloyd Wright, and the other time with General Douglas MacArthur.”
The man takes great photographs, writes phenomenal text, and communes with Gods … what more could we ask for?
