John Dominis was a staff photographer at Life Magazine for 25 years and was one of their most versatile image makers. Click here or on the image above to go to theTime/Life web page to see some of his most iconic images.
As a young photographer growing up the images Dominis made for Life helped me forge my photographic sense of place. His images of scenics, celebrities, wildlife, sports, and war were some of the best images of the 60's, 70's and 80's. Now, as a 30 year veteran photojournalist I can see a little of his vision in my images from time to time. Thanks John for inspiring me to a great career.
