Mr. Morris discussed his book, Get the Picture: A Personal History of Photojournalism, published by Random House, and his long career as a journalist and picture editor. He told the inside stories behind several images, including the London air raids, the D-Day landing during World War II, and the assassination of Robert Kennedy. In the book he wrote, “Picture editors are the unwitting (or witting, as the case may be) taskmasters, the unappointed guardians of morality, the talent brokers, the accomplices to celebrity.” The book is the history of fifty years of photojournalism. close
