Gerry Souter was a photography student from the Art Institute who came to the work as a press photographer for the Chicago Tribune in 1964. He stayed two years. In that time, he had a view of photojournalism that we will never see again.
Since that time, he has become a media consultant and prolific author, writing over 40 books with his wife Janet.
Recently he privately responded to one of my blog posts, sharing some of the history of photojournalism as practiced in Chicago about 47 years ago. It was fascinating, so I asked for a “10 Questions” interview about life as a press photographer in the early 60’s.
