He's Seen And Shot It All

French photographer Henri Dauman is not a household name, but it’s likely you’ve seen a few of his images. In the early 1960s, he worked for Life magazine, photographing stars such as Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot and Andy Warhol. His photographs captured the human side of his celebrity subjects, like Jackie Kennedy during JFK’s 1963 funeral procession. Dauman’s work is on display at the KP Projects gallery in mid-city Los Angeles. (Can be seen by appointment.) He’s also the subject of a new documentary, “Henri Dauman: Looking Up,” directed by Peter Kenneth Jones, which recounts his escape from Nazi occupied France and the loss of his parents.
