David Douglas Duncan

Herman, an old friend from Kansas City, reminds me, following my posts about Lynsey Addario, that David Douglas Duncan came out of Kansas City and was recently the topic of this very interesting Kansas City Star piece:


Duncan was one of the most important war photographers of the 20th century.  He was a Marine officer covering World War II, Korean War and the VietNam War; was a former Life photographer; and is also noted for his work in other subjects (for example, I have his 1969 Self-Portrait: U.S.A. book).

And I enjoyed Duncan’s Picasso photos, like this one:
