Chris Szwedo, filmmaker, "Eye On The 60's"

Photographer Rowland Scherman


One photograph can capture the essence of an emotion, an event and sometimes even a person.

When you combine great photography with historic events, you come as close as you can to experiencing the past.

Photographer Rowland Scherman worked in Washington D.C. taking photographs of President John F. Kennedy and the March on Washington.

Scherman worked for the Peace Corps taking photographs of the meeting of cultures around the world. He also worked for LIFE magazine, photographing the iconic musicians of the '60s.

Now Rowland Scherman and his pictures are the subject of a documentary, "EYE ON THE '60s: The Iconic Photography of Rowland Scherman," which will be screened at the Museum of Photographic Arts Sunday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m.
