Who Shot That?
WHO SHOT THAT
Peter Adams, a ‘Photographer’s photographer’, has worked on this project for the past 33 years. This small volume (A5 x 128 pages), is a catalogue from an exhibition at Monash Regional Art Gallery in 2005. The book contains around sixty portraits. The complete collection (now renamed ‘A Few of the Legends’) includes around 500 interviews with, and portraits of, the world’s master photographers – photographers who made the world’s most memorable images. Images like the ‘Raising of the Flag at Iwo Jima’, the haunting picture made by Eddie Adams in Vietnam of the prisoner being executed in the street and the portrait of Winston Churchill by Yousuf Karsh, that first appeared on the cover of Life Magazine.
“Peter Adams: a great Australian whose photographs I admire - a fellow sufferer, a fellow toiler in the fields.” - Arnold Newman, New York
This small book (16.5 x 24 cm, 128 pages) is a great introduction to Adams’ enormous body of work during which he “travelled nearly 300,000 miles, shot around 30,000 negatives and survived on the smell of an oily rag and 700 hamburgers!” says Peter. It is available directly from Peter through his secure order system on this site - or through fine book shops. (ISBN NUMBER: 0-9757813-0-8)
