RIP Dennis Stock!

@ Dennis Stock/ Magnum Photos

Another legendary photojournalist who shot some iconic images especially of Hollywood passed away last week. Dennis Stock shot into spotlight by winning a Life magazine photo contest, and was brought into Magnum photo collective by Robert Capa.

If you look at this Time magazine gallery Life photographer Dennis Stock please check the picture of Audrey Hepburn, and also quickly click on my previous post on Bob Willoughby and see his picture of Hepburn. I had an uncanny feeling that both these legends shot the actress on the same day, at the same location, and at the same time. Do you feel so?

Also read this obituary on Stock. Magnum photos also have a wonderful multimedia gallery on a broader range of Stock’s work, in his words on Magnum in motion
