People who have saved this event:


According to TIME magazine, Henri Dauman created “photos that play like a slideshow of some of the biggest moments in American history and popular culture.” From JFK to Brigitte Bardot, Henri Dauman's iconic photography defined the 20th century.


While on assignment, Dauman captured poignant images of celebrities, musicians, politicians, pop culture icons and a myriad of pivotal moments in American history. His wide range of subjects included film sirens Brigitte Bardot and Marilyn Monroe, music legend Elvis Presley, Pop icon Andy Warhol, John and Jacqueline Kennedy, and writers Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams. He also travelled internationally to bring the Castro revolution in Cuba, and Buddhists protest in Vietnam, to international newspapers and media.

Dauman’s poignant vision of the world around him was the driving force in his ability to tell the stories of socio-political unease, shifting cultural values, and beauty in unity through glimpses into the day-to-day life of the latter half of 20th Century America. His vision is that of a man whose life experience, and subsequent triumph over many of life’s hurdles, put him in a privileged position to tell the story of a multi-faceted American Dream.
