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.

WHAT’S IT LIKE TO WRITE ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS SONGS EVER? FRANKE PREVITE TELLS US

TIME OF MY LIFE is one of the best known songs ever…Franke Previte, at the time a hard rocker, wrote it for the film, DIRTY DANCING.

He takes Mark through the story of where he was and where he ended up after the song hit.

The film. Dirty Dancing, was desperately in need of a key song and Franke wrote TIME OF MY LIFE along with a second hit, Hungry Eyes that’s in the movie as well.

The song, TIME OF MY LIFE won an Academy Award in 1987 and Franke also got a Golden Globe and Grammy nomination.

The song has gone on to be used frequently in commercials and other media offerings long after the film it was written for has gone to streaming services.

Meantime, Franke has written many other songs as well.

He visits with Mark from his home in New Jersey.

For more information on Franke’s other projects and to hear his original music, including TIME OF YOUR LIFE as he’d recorded it, here are the links.
