Follow three professional photographers as they scramble to record the most dramatic and far-reaching news story of the last half of the 20th century. This volume displays the camera work and story of White House photographer Cecil Stoughton, Associated Press photographer James Altgens, and Dallas free-lance photographer Jim Murray. Hear these articulate observers recount the traumatic, historic and sad events they witnessed. Examine their photo coverage in large-format, full frame color and black & white images made on November 22, 1963.

This new, color edition includes 18 color and 107 black & white full-image photographs of the Fort Worth morning activities, the reception at Love Field in Dallas, the motorcade and assassination scene, activity at Parkland Memorial Hospital, the casket arriving back at Air Force One, the swearing-in of Lyndon Johnson as President, activity in and around Dealey Plaza and the Texas School Book Depository following the assassination, activity at the Dallas Trade Mart, Dallas Sheriff and Dallas Police Departments, the showing of Oswald to the press, the Tippit funeral, and the December bail hearing of Jack Ruby.

Also included are the circumstances relating to several later controversial photographs taken by these three photographers, including the Johnson wink photo,; Oswald possibly seen in the Book Depository doorway at the time of the shooting, Ruby in Dealey Plaza at the time of the assassination, activity around the sewer cover in Dealey Plaza just after the shots were fired, and the possible discovery of a second assassin gun. Many of the photographs in this book had never been published before. Photographs also include scenes of Trauma Room Two, Oswald at Parkland Hospital following his shooting, the Impeach Earl Warren sign, and professional portraits of Rev. Oscar Huber, Marguerite Oswald, and Jack Ruby.

The skill of these three professional photographers and their ability to locate themselves at the right place at the right time allows us to experience in dramatic words and with on-the-spot pictures, one of the seminal events of the 20th century. On that day in Dallas, American history was changed forever.

Review:

FROM LIBRARY JOURNAL

Trask's Pictures of the Pain: Photography and the Assassination of President Kennedy (Yeoman Press, 1994) is a highly regarded comprehensive photographic investigation of the JFK murder. This second compilation brings together the pictures and observations of three photographers who covered the events in Dallas - Cecil Stoughton, the official presidential photographer; James Altgens of the Associated Press; and, James Murray, a very lucky freelancer whose timing was perfect. Their own words show the photographers to be complete professionals of the highest integrity, refusing to be overwhelmed by the incredible emotional stress of the events or seduced by the sometimes outlandish theories of conspiracy honchos. More than 100, several 8 1/2" x 11" stark black-and-white photos provide a graphic recollection of this national trauma. The photographers' technical descriptions may escape the general reader, and a summary tying together their thoughts would have been helpful. Yet this work succeeds largely because the photographers speak for themselves and for the outstanding photographic record provided. Recommended for most public libraries and photography collections.
