More About This Book

Overview

Dirck Halstead is one of America's preeminent photojournalists, whose iconic images have graced more covers of Time magazine than any other photographer's. From the battlefields of Vietnam to the halls of the White House to film sets around the world, Halstead's sense of timing and eye for the revealing shot was unerring throughout his 50-year career. Among the 300 photographs in this collection are many that are instantly recognizable, such as Bill Clinton embracing Monica Lewinsky, or Nixon saluting with his famous V-for-victory sign. Others have become more resonant with the passage of time. Throughout, Halstead provides fast-paced, lively, and engaging accounts of his experiences in the field. A one-of-a-kind autobiography in words and pictures, Moments in Time is a half-century of history seen through one photographer's lens.

    Just a face in the crowd, the famous monica bill photo

    The story behind the famous picture of Monica and Bill, is fascinating, Mr. Halstead, shot that picture according to his book, when the President was running for a second term, Monica was just a face in the crowd. What Mr. Halstead did that the other photographers covering the president did not do? He shot film, the rest shot digital pictures and if they ever had the image, it was erased. Two years later, Mr.Halstead recognized that face in tyhe crowd as she appeared on T.V. and he knew he had the picture. It was that picture alone that changed the course of the President's future. I was enthralled and could not put this book down as I was taken from wartorn Veitnam to the Oval office. a must read for anyone who wants to experience moments in time.
