Legendary Photograher, Henri Dauman, on Hiding From the Nazis, coming to the USA and Chronicling Generations of American Life

Henri Dauman and his camera lens have been witness to some of the most famous people and memorable events in modern history.

His photographs splashed across magazines like LIFE, LOOK and  PARIS MATCH in the heydays of those publications and vaulted him to the top of his field.

He visits with Mark Thompson and J Elvis Weinstein and although they begin with discussions of his photography and his iconic photos chronicling American life, the emotional, personal story that is Henri’s life is one they discuss in detail as well.

Henri’s father was killed by the Nazis at Auschwitz and his mother died in a freakish accident when Henri was only 13.  This, after his mother and he had separated and survived hiding from the Nazis as they rose to power in France.

Henri’s work and life is brilliantly put together in a yet-to-be-released documentary called Henri Dauman: Looking Up.  The director of that documentary, Peter Kenneth Jones joins Mark and Josh at the end of the show.
