Publisher's Description

With unique access to the most intriguing and enduring legends of our time, Harry Benson: Persons of Interest is a compelling masterpiece of photojournalism and portraiture.

Celebrating Benson’s 60+ year career and featuring photographs spanning his early years on London’s Fleet Street to his arrival in New York in 1964 with the Beatles, to marching with Martin Luther King during the Civil Rights movement, to being present at RFK’s assassination, to scores of Hollywood and music and sports legends, and right up to the present as the only person who has photographed the last twelve Presidents from Eisenhower to Trump, Benson’s unparalleled magnum opus is to be published following the massive success of the Magnolia Pictures documentary film, Harry Benson: Shoot First (2016).

With decades spent deliberately being in the just the right place at just the the right time, Benson’s photographs and writings of his encounters and adventures are sure to be of broad interest to photography afficionados, history lovers, and people young and old. With subjects ranging from Queen Elizabeth to Amy Winehouse, from Frank Sinatra to Brad Pitt, from Greta Garbo to Kate Moss, from Winston Churchill to Hilary Clinton, and Donald Trump, Benson explores and delights our public fascination with his images of the lives of the rich, powerful, and famous.

In April 2017 Benson received the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Center of Photography.
Critic Leonard Maltin said it all when he wrote, “Harry Benson has been witness to the key events of the past half-century and has never failed to capture their most telling moments with his camera.”
