A Gap in the Media where the Truth Shone Through
The Tapestry Gallery, 3rd Floor, 68-76 Kempston St, Liverpool L3 8HL
Open 11.00 am – 6.00 pm
Chuck Rapoport photographed the Kennedys, Marilyn, and Castro for Life, Paris Match, and Time. Exhibiting as-yet-unseen Rapoport photographs from 1968.
Throughout the Sixties, I.C. Rapoport photographed the Kennedys, Marilyn, Castro,
Truffaut, Beckett, Aznavour, and The Lovin’ Spoonful for Life Magazine, Paris Match,
Time Magazine, and Sports Illustrated. However, no subject touched Chuck Rapoport more than documenting the aftermath of the Welsh Aberfan Tragedy of 1966.
John Hyatt curates a world premiere of five previously unexhibited and unpublished Rapoport photographs from 1968 of an everyday morning at a kiosk in New York made extraordinary by the newspaper headline, ‘WORST WEEK 543 GIs DIE’, announcing how many troops had been killed in Vietnam that week, sparking nationwide protests against the US policy of war in Vietnam. A quiet morning when media censorship slipped and the Truth shone through.
Chuck Rapoport will be visiting to talk about photography and his photographs in a public talk and conversation (see events)
