""Magic is the word we [photographers] use to describe what we discovered...when we think we've captured in a photograph some missing feeling, or hidden beauty, or bit of mystery from the fabric of life."" -John Loengard <BR>John Loengard, one of the great "LIFE" magazine photographers, sums up his 50-year career in this handsome volume. His subjects include movie stars, writers, politicians, artists, and other photographers, as well as everyday people engaged in a host of extraordinary activities-or, rather, typical activities rendered unforgettable and compelling by the photographer's vision. From a shimmering Marilyn Monroe to a man dozing on the beach, from a guffawing Ronald Reagan to Henri Cartier-Bresson flying a kite, from a groundskeeper in Dublin to picnickers in Central Park, Loengard's vision moves us with its humanity and artistry. <BR>John Loengard's own commentaries on his pictures enlarge our understanding and deepen our appreciation of them. These vivid texts-who knew that the term "silhouette" was the name of Louis XV's budget-conscious finance minister?-help us to see as if through Loengard's own eyes.
