Photographer Spotlight: Tony Vaccaro

Photographer Spotlight: Tony Vaccaro

Michael 'Tony' Vaccaro's work covers a rich mixture of photojournalism, celebrities and fashion. His photographic career was launched with a baptism of fire in the battlefields of WWII. Thereafter, armed with a portfolio of over 4000 images and a Purple Heart, he became chief photographer on Flair magazine. 

A subsequent freelance career took in contracts from such magazines as Look, Venture and Life. Many techniques used in his pictures were developed by Vaccaro himself and are now standard practice amongst today's photographers.
