Dennis Stock 1928-2010

Posted in photography by aldorf on January 13, 2010

Here is how Dennis described his life as a photographer: “I have been privileged to view much of life through my cameras, making the journey an enlightened experience.”

A photographer with Magnum Photos for nearly 50 years.

Dennis was particularly well known for his intimate and now iconic photographs of James Dean for Life magazine, which were taken shortly before the young actor’s untimely death in 1955.

Dennis was the author of 27 books and his work is in museum collections around the world, including the International Center of Photography, New York, the Chicago Institute of Art, and the Musée d’Arte Moderne de la ville de Paris. He will be greatly missed.
