DENNIS STOCK (1928-2010)
Dennis Stock, a native New Yorker and a Navy veteran, became an apprentice to Life magazine photographer Gjon Mili in 1947; 4 years later he entered a Life magazine contest for young photographers and won first prize for a series on immigrants. He joined Magnum Photo Agency in 1951, remaining a lifelong member. Stock managed to evoke the spirit of America through his memorable portraits of Hollywood as well as the jazz scene, most notably for his iconic photos of James Dean. He was the author of more than two dozen books and his work is in many important international collections including the Art Institute of Chicago;  Kunsthaus Zurich, Musee d’Art Moderne, Paris; Fotografiska Museet, Stockholm and MoMA, New York.
